Description

Thomas Edison was an inventor.
He invented the electric lighting system, the phonograph and alkaline batteries. He invented a camera to record moving pictures and a device for watching them. He added sound to create a motion picture.
He worked on and improved many of the machines we use today. He even created a battery powered car.
Thomas Edison created more inventions than any other inventor.
Edison believed in hard work, and insisted everyone around him work hard.
He never saw failure as a bad thing. He learned more from failed experiments than he did from successful ones.
All his notes were hand written. He wrote over five million documents. These included over 4000 notebooks, sketches and drawings, and correspondence. These documents help us understand who Thomas Edison was.
