Owning a Thomas Edison autograph gives a personal connection with the brilliant inventor whose discoveries profoundly affected the way people lived. He became so well known in his lifetime that owning an Edison signature or a Thomas Edison signed letter can be a reality today because Edison’s autographs have been treasured since his lifetime.
Edison’s background seems almost classic for developing an innovative mind. He was a mediocre student, easily bored with standard teaching based on memorization. His inquisitiveness led to his building a laboratory in the basement of his parent’s home. A train accident when he was 15 affected his hearing and likely influenced his interest that led to numerous inventions involving sound. Edison’s pursuit of a light bulb filament that would be long-lasting is a classic of determination and experimentation, trying hundreds of materials before discovering the right one. Edison’s inventions in electricity led to the electrification of cities. His patents for the phonograph, motion picture systems and hundreds of other inventions make him the best known American inventor.
Thomas Edison’s signature shows a sense of style indicative of an inventive mind. Edison invented his autograph as he invented everything he saw a need for.
