Thomas Edison

Inventor (1847-1931)

Thomas Edison was a brilliant inventor, known for several renowned inventions including the phonograph, telegraph, the universal stock ticker, motion picture, and the first incandescent electric light bulb. Although he received the most recognition for perfecting the light bulb, he said his favorite invention was the phonograph.

Edison was born in 1847 in Milan, Ohio, and was the youngest of seven children of parents Samuel and Nancy Edison- who was an accomplished teacher. When Edison was a child, he had scarlet fever and several ear infections that left him with hearing difficulties as a child and nearly deaf as an adult.

In 1871, Edison married 16-year-old Mary Stilwell, who was an employee at one of his businesses. During their 13-year marriage, they had three children: Marion, Thomas and William- who also became an inventor. Edison nicknamed two of his children “Dot” and “Dash” in honor of his telegraph days. In 1884, Mary died at the age of 29 of a brain tumor. In 1886, Edison married Mina Miller who was 19 years younger than him.

Edison did not learn to talk until he was almost four years old, but he loved to read. Edison’s mother Nancy home-schooled Edison because he got into trouble at school often for not paying attention.
