Newspaper Clippings (1908-1912)
This folder contains originals and photocopies of newspaper articles from the period 1908-1912. The selected items relate to Edison's attendance at an honorary dinner at the Plaza Hotel in New York City in December 1909; his appearance with MPPCo executives in a motion picture that was made as a souvenir for the occasion; and his expected income from motion picture royalties. Less than 10 percent of the documents have been selected. The unselected clippings primarily concern the formation of MPPCo and related litigation.
