I am asked to say something about the scientific qualities and achievements of Mr. Edison. But from my point of view the scientific influence of any man is so interwoven with his character, with his mode of thought, with his outlook on life as reflected in his acts, his words and his daily walk among his fellows that I prefer to let what I say about Mr. Edison's science grow out of a somewhat broader consideration of the qualities which made him the commanding figure that he was and that, as I think, he always will be.
