Special Collections Series -- Naval Consulting Board and Wartime Research Papers
Correspondence (1930 )
This folder consists primarily of correspondence relating to a proposed visit to the West Orange Laboratory by the members of the Naval Consulting Board (NCB) in conjunction with their annual dinner commemorating the end of the war. Although Edison expressed a willingness to meet them, he was not well enough to see the visitors when they arrived on November 12. The correspondents include Edison's personal assistant William H. Meadowcroft, NCB secretary Thomas Robins, and NCB member Spencer Miller.Four of the seven documents have been selected. Some of the unselected items relate to the death of NCB member Andrew L. Riker.
