Scope and Content

 

This is an artificial collection composed of material that was pulled from other collections at some point, most likely at the Hall of Electrical History. The bulk of the materials relate to the testing of lamp filaments and bulbs from 1910-1916. These include progress reports and meeting minutes.

 

The collection also includes a schedule of GE sponsored Electrical Camps in 1950, and a number of photographs relating to GEs X-ray experiments and x-ray negatives of the human body.
