Inventor and capitalist Thomas Alva Edison was born 175 years ago today, on 11-February-1847. I read several books about him when I was in school. He created the first laboratory for industrial research. His teams developed commercially viable motion pictures and made great improvements to storage batteries. He and his team invented the phonograph.
