Abstract

Would like there to be an Edison Course of Electrical Engineering, and gives a list of reasons why this should be at Cornell University. [TAE replies: "Say that I am committed to Columbia & must give them time to decide but am under the impression that they will do nothing - after that The Stevens Institute desire to establish a course I have several men who were trained at the Stevens and They are the best I have The Course institute are about starting a right School to learn Engineer & other who ahead have work but of course this is a different matter - There is a great advantage in having the school near N York but if neither Columbia or the Stevens starts a course in the proper matter, I Will be very happy to cooperate with Cornell, the tendency of both places are towards too much theory & impracticable profession"]
