This folder contains letters of introduction and requests to visit Edison or to tour his West Orange laboratory. Included are documents regarding arrangements for visits by Josef Hofmann, the renowned concert pianist; and by former Governor J. Turner Morehead, accompanied by former laboratory employee Robert T. Lozier. Substantive letters from individuals who visited the laboratory or company shops on business can be found in their appropriate subject folders.
Approximately 20 percent of the documents have been selected. The documents not selected are routine requests that received no significant response from Edison. Among these are 3 letters by Charles A. Munn of the Scientific American concerning a proposed visit by Prince Albert of Belgium.
