Edisons Smoking Research
A look at historic research
Thomas Alva Edison may be best remembered for his engineering and development work on the light bulb, sound recording, and a host of other stimulating technology. History books seldom devote space to Edison's research on the effects of smoking. This brief film from 1897 documents some of the smoking research performed in Edison's laboratory.
