Abstract:

The main body of the collection consists of incoming and outgoing correspondence, 1855-1900. During the Civil War, Painter was a Washington correspondent of the "Philadelphia Inquirer" and there is some routine correspondence from this period. The bulk of the correspondence is for the years 1875-1900 and deals with Painter's numerous business interests. This material is also largely routine, but it represents a variety of industrial enterprises. Among the companies are: The Edison Speaking Phonograph Co., American Graphophone Co., Western Union Telegraph Co., New York, Pennsylvania, and Norfolk Railroad Co., Pennsylvania Railroad, Denver and Rio Grande Railroad Co., Union Pacific Railroad Co., Edison Electric Light Co., Edison General Electric Co., Western Electric Co., General Incandescent Arc Light Co., and Interior Conduit and Insulation Co.. The correspondents include: Thomas A. Edison, Thomas T. Eckerts, President of Western Union Telegraph Co., and Grenville M. Dodge, President of the Colorado and Texas Railway Construction Co.. The correspondence includes letterbooks dealing with the New York, Pennsylvania, and Norfolk Railroad Co.; Edward H. Johnson letterbooks of the Edison Company for Isolated Lighting; and business letterbooks of William Painter, Uriah Painter's brother.

The collection also contains the business records of two Painter enterprises: Edison Speaking Phonograph Co., 1878-1880 (25 v.), -- including letterbooks, account books, and other material, with letters to and from Thomas Edison; and Danville Furnace, Danville, PA, 1879-1884 (21 v., 200 items), -- including correspondence, receipted bills, other accounts, and records.
