Edison

Edison’s Electric Pen No. 1 – held by Greenfield Village (a living-history exhibit affiliated with the Henry Ford Museum).

The most definitive online guide to Edison’s electric pen – from development to sample documents to a parts list, and even including a list of all known extant pens can be found on Bill Burns’ site “Edison’s electric pen.” Very much worth a visit.
