The Outstanding Ohioans Show, Episode 44-The Thomas Alva Edison Birthplace Museum, Interview with Lois Wolfe (Director) & Board of Trustee members Robert Wheeler, John Blakeman & Don Gfell
In Episodes 43 & 44, I had the privilege of interviewing Lois Wolfe (Director) & Board of Trustee members Robert Wheeler, John Blakeman & Don Gfell, who help operate the Thomas Alva Edison Birthplace Museum in Milan, Ohio of the Edison Birthplace Association, Inc., a private, non-profit organization.
After the death of Thomas A. Edison from complications of diabetes on October 18, 1931, opening his birthplace to the public as a memorial and museum became the private project of his wife, Mina Miller Edison, and their daughter, Mrs. John Eyre Sloane. The Edison Birthplace Museum opened on the centennial of the inventor's birth in 1947.
Here are some of the highlights from our conversation:
