Abstract

"Edison Sues His Agents", New York Tribune. TAE has sued Gilliland and Tomlinson claiming that "they ought to disgorge $250,000 which, he says, they got unbeknown to him." TAE says that is has been his practice to reward his assistants, when he puts inventions on the market by incorporated companies, with shares in the stock of the company in lieu of salary or orther compensation. The article then details how TAE began working with the two, the beginnings of the Edison Phonograph Company, and the transaction to sell the phonograph patent was made.
