Thomas Alva Edison: American Wizard
Join us as we take a look at Thomas Alva Edison, the man who changed the world with his 1,093 patented inventions, among which are included the phonograph, the incandescent light bulb, and the talking doll (not all of his inventions were successes!). His "Invention Factory" provided an environment in which young inventors could tinker and test ideas. He had a strong work ethic that would let neither successes nor failures slow him down. He also was a family man and knew how to have fun with his "Vagabond" friends. A man who achieved remarkable fame in his own lifetime, Edison is worthy of a fresh look in the December 2005 issue.
