Thomas Alva Edison

Erfinder und Unternehmer, 1847-1931

Edisons Verdienste gründen in erster Linie auf der Marktfähigkeit seiner Erfindungen, die er mit Geschick zu einem ganzen System von Stromerzeugung, Stromverteilung und innovativen elektrischen Konsumprodukten verbinden konnte. Seine grundlegende Erfindungen und Entwicklungen in den Bereichen elektrisches Licht, Telekommunikation sowie Medien für Ton und Bild hatten einen großen Einfluss auf die allgemeine technische und kulturelle Entwicklung. Die Leistung von Edison bei der Elektrifizierung New Yorks und der Einführung von Elektrolicht markiert den Beginn der umfassenden Elektrifizierung der industrialisierten Welt. Diese epochale Veränderung ist insbesondere mit seinem Namen verbunden.

An agreement regarding battery production throughout the world. To Herman E. Dick, a founding director of the Edison Ore Milling Syndicate and by 1905, the foreign agent promoting Edison's battery in Europe. Edison informs Dick that as he has established battery production facilities in Germany, England, and France, as well as in America, the company should be able to meet demand throughout the world: "[...] I would undoubtedly be able to make more satisfactory terms for handling this business than any one else, and since you are largely interested in all of the three main foreign companies, you would of course benefit by any additional business that such companies might do in other countries outside of their own territories.

Therefore [...] I will be obliged if you will sign the subscribed consent, agreeing that all future negotiations for foreign countries shall be left entirely to me [...]". - Duly countersigned by Dick and a witness. Leaves creased and moderately toned; perforation at upper left corner of each leaf..

To the French inventor and engineer Édouard Belin (1876-1933), confirming the receipt of a photograph: "I am writing to acknowledge the receipt of your photograph which you have kindly inscribed for me. It is a very good picture of you and I have had it framed and it is hanging in my Library at the Laboratory". - Édouard Belin met Edison at least once and apparently made a good impression. The first transatlantic phototelegraphic connection based on Belin's invention called Bélinographe had been established in 1921.
