A look at historic research

Thomas Edison's research on Group Psychology

Thomas Alva Edison may be best remembered for his engineering and development work on the light bulb, sound recording, and a perhaps, Newtonian motion. History books seldom devote space to Edison's research on the phenomenon of Group Psychology. This brief film from 1894 documents some of the Group Psychology research performed in Edison's laboratory.
