“Thoughts While Creating”


Thomas A. Edison

Thomas Edison’s first great invention was the tin foil phonograph. The word phonograph was the trade name for Edison’s device which played cylinders. The date given for Edison’s completion for the first phonograph was August 12th, 1877. In 1878, Edison founded the Edison Speaking Phonograph Company to sell the new machine.


Edison didn’t invent the lightbulb but rather he improved upon a 50-year-old idea. In 1879 by using lower currents, a small carbonized filament, and an improved vacuum in the globe he was able to product reliable long-lasting light. The first public demonstration was at his Menlo Park laboratory complex in December 1879.


Perhaps his greatest quote sums up his life and philosophy – “I have not failed,I have found 10,000 ways that don’t work”.


The Wright Brothers, Thomas Edison, George Washington Carver, Sarah Boone, and many others were American pioneers that made their dream reality through hard work and perseverance.
