[D8704AAA], Letter from James Thomas Edwards to Thomas Alva Edison, January 3rd, 1887

Abstract

The director of experimental sciences at Chautauqua asks whether TAE might connect himself with the institution by building an "Edison Hall of Experimental Science" for teaching physics, chemistry, and industrial education or at least by donating some "appliances." Noteworthy over-the-top quote: "More than any other living person you have aided man to enter upon his kingship over nature by placing in his hand the secrets of this wonderful world. May you long live not only to find for us the physical forces of the universe but also aid us in increasing the moral power of the world."
