[D8403ZBB], Letter from Howard Greenman to Thomas Alva Edison, April 5th, 1884

Editor's Notes

[SELECTABLE AS COUNTERPOINT TO EDUCATIONAL INQUIRIES AND PLANS] Planning to take college scientific course, specializing in electricity. Will this give me a knowledge of electricity suitable for business or do the EE courses merely give a man "a theoretical accomplishment, which he can never apply in practice for his livelihood"? TAE marg: "To tell the truth College Electricians are no good. The only way into to learn it where it is commercially carried out. There is always a demand for practical electricians with business instincts."
