Thomas Edison's research on Nonverbal Communications

Thomas Alva Edison may be best remembered for his engineering and development work on the light bulb, sound recording, and a perhaps, Beard Removal. History books seldom devote space to Edison's research on Nonverbal Communications. This brief film from 1903 documents some of the Nonverbal Communications research performed in Edison's laboratory.
