THOMAS ALVA EDISON, CO-SIGNED BY: BRUNO WOLNITZKY
1922 typed memo between inventor Thomas Edison and Bruno Wolnitzky, who ran the Edison Service Record Club, regarding expenses for an employee in Indianapolis. With a handwritten and signed note by Edison.
Memorandum signed "B Wolnitzky." and "TAE", both in pencil. 1 page, 8½x11. Dec. 27, 1922. Memo to Edison from Wolnitzky on "Indianapolis Expenses". Wolnitzky's typed memo in full: "Referring to the attach memorandum, I wish to advise that we pay Morrison living expenses up to $20. a week as agreed with him before he left and as approved by you. In addition to this we allow Morrison expenses for telegrams, stamps, postals, &c. - expenses incurred in carrying on our work, as we have always don in the past. When the attached bill of expenses was turned in to Mr. J. V Miller I informed Mr. Laing of Mr. J. V. Miller's office that it was O. K. but he apparently neglected to pass this information along to Mr. Miller which caused this present misunderstanding [last word is handwritten]." Edison's one-word handwritten reply was "OK". "Mr. J. V. Miller" is probably JOHN V. MILLER, Edison's brother-in-law and personal aide. BRUNO WOLNITZKY was an employee of Thomas Edison who ran the Edison Service Record Club, an early form of modern record clubs. THOMAS EDISON (1847-1931, born in Milan, Ohio) patented more than a thousand inventions, including the incandescent electric lamp, phonograph (his favorite invention), mimeograph, alkaline storage battery and microphone. In 1890, he invented the Vitascope, and Edison is credited with establishing the standard of using 35mm film with four perforations on the edges. He produced talking motion pictures in 1913. In 1887, Edison had set up his facility dedicated to research and development in West Orange, New Jersey. By the following year, it was the world's largest scientific testing laboratory. His original laboratory, in Menlo Park, New Jersey, was removed to the Greenfield Village Museum in Dearborn, Michigan by his friend, Henry Ford, in 1929. Lightly toned, soiled and creased. One tape remnant at left edge. Tears in top, left and bottom edges. Light nicks in left, right and bottom edges. Pinholes near left edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
