As the end of the 20th century becomes closer each day some of us will think back of the good times and memories theyve had Some of us may even think of the great leaders or people that have impacted their lives and the world People such as Martin Luther King John F Kennedy or maybe even Bill Clinton are a few of the many people that might cross your mind There is one person you will know for sure before you leave here today because he was considered the greatest inventor in history Even though he only had 3 months of formal schooling and was partially deaf this man impacted the world with his great inventions This man was Thomas Alva EdisonThomas Edison was born on Feb 11 1847 at Milan Ohio One of his inventions and his most favorite was the phonograph or record player What he did was put a metal cylinder with tin foil wrapped around it with two needles units one for recording and the other for playback Then when one would speak into the mouthpiece the sound vibrations would be indented onto the cylinder by the recording needle This machine was invented by Edison in 1877 and was later modified by other inventors and himself Not long after the creation of the phonograph the Edison Phonograph Company was formed to market his machine Another of his most famous inventions was the electric light bulb This invention was a struggle to say the least But Edison had a vision which was to invent a small light that could be used in homes and offices He spent two years searching for the proper wire that would give a good light when electricity flowed through it Edison tried many things even a hair from a mans beard He failed many times but was too committed to quit His hard work and dedication finally paid off On October 19 1879 after many failures
