It was run successfully with Charles Edison as its president, until it 
merged with McGraw in 1957. (You've never seen a 'McGraw-Edison' appliance? 
I have a nice heater of theirs - cost me $2 at a yard sale 30 years ago, and 
it still cranks out the BTUs very nicely!)

  I am unaware of any "terminal decline" - maybe of the unused buildings 
after the merger, but not Thomas A. Edison, Inc.

Does anyone know the history of what happened to the Edison company after 
Tom died. It seems that they never really moved in any new direction other 
than terminal decline..
