MITCHELL p. HEP BURN; of Ontario, took occasion recently to-pay a personal tribut on behalf of Canada to the memorj of Tbomas A. Edison during the course of the "-jognition celebra tions of the famous Inventor in conjunction with the proclamation signed by President Roosevelt designating February 11 as Edison Day. Premier Hepburn's home in St. Thomas is only a few mile; west of Vienna where Samuel Edi son married Miss Nancy Elliot, £. school teacher in 1828, and ia 1847 in Milan, Ohio, a son Thomas was born, destined to be one of the world's most famous benefactors Friends, neighbors and business associates, who knew Thomas Alva Edison during his life, heard Premier Hepburn not only express to them his admiration for the genius and human side of the man but, appreciating the sincerity of the acknowledgment, added that "we don't do enough of this sort of thing" when we are prone to overlook the greatness of the men who have done so much in building up our civilization rather than to those who are tearing it down. Premier Hepburn said he and the people of the Dominion were proud to share in the reflected glory because of Edison's Canadian heritage. In 1777. during the American Revolution, John Edison, great grandfather of Thomas A. Edison, guided General Howe's army across northern New Jersey. Taken prisoner as a Tory, his wife's family subsequently obtained his release and pardon. He remained loyal to the Crown, however, and migrated with his family to Nova Scotia. Samuel Edison, grandfather of the genius, was a captain tn the Canadian army. In 1804, a son was born to the Edisons and he, like his father, bore the name Samuel. A few years later they moved to Vienna. Ontario, where Thomas A. Edison's father owned and managed a hotel and became a dominant figure ia the political life of the small town. After crossing the boundary into Ohio where Thomas ivas born, the family remained but By MARTIN U PETRY the young man returned to Stratford where he worked as a Higlit telegraph operator with the Canadian National. It was here, biographers agree, that the inventive genius of this amazing youth began to show itself in his efforts to i m p r o v e upon the science af telegraphy. From the time of his association with Canadian railroading the story of Edison unfoltis i like a fairy tale in its revelation of what one man can accomplish in the spun of a single lifetime by devotion to his work. It is conservatively estimated that the industries arising directly from his inventions, as much as ten years ago, represented an investment of more than $25.000,000,000 and that 2.000,000 persons, or one out of every nine employed In manufacturing, mechanical a n d communication industries, o w e d their jobs directly to Thomas A. Edison. Thus, he not only gave us so many modern devices to improve the standard of our living but ho also "invented jobs." Strangely enough. Ontario provides a vast amount of nickel for the battery which is regarded as one of Edison's most difficult inventions for he spent ten years of his life in making over 50,000 experiments to perfect the nickel-iron- ilkaline battery now used the world over. Then, too, the mami- 'acture of generators and accessories m Canada began In Hamil- on. now one of Ontario's leading ndustrial cities, tn March, 18S3. During his life Edison received some 1150 patents and perhaps the est known accomplishment was he development of the first prae- ical incandescent lamp although here were many others like the ahonograph, the motion picture camera and the carbon microphone transmitter which played an im- K)rtant part in the development of he telephone and the art o£ radio broadcasting. Thomas A. Edison was born in he United States but the people of he Dominion, and particularly hose of Ontario, like to regard him s a "part-time" child of Canada. filed at the Commission's Washing- |*ss ton office not later than November *' 13, 1941. , t, on which the national park · j e , on w c e national park Newaygo 7, Otsego 6, Manistee 6 Holding that the Legislature intendl- 1 service is cooperating with the con- Gladwin 6, 4 each in Benzie, Missau- 1 ed the camp deer "for camp purpos- 1 servalion department.
