This folder contains correspondence and other documents concerning Edison's opinion on technical and other forms of education. Most of the correspondence consists of unsolicited inquires. Included is a letter from Edith Kingman Kern of the National League of American Pen Women enclosing resolutions denouncing the "pernicious influence" of the comic supplements in the Sunday newspapers. Also included is a letter from Frederick H. Cowles, a son of longtime Edison associate and Ansonia Brass and Copper Co. executive Alfred A. Cowles.
Approximately 10 percent of the documents, including all letters bearing substantive marginalia by Edison, have been selected.
