Edison, in this photo taken from motion picture footage in the Business School's Business History Film Collection, rests after working 72 straight hours on his phonograph. Edison and his research assistants often toiled for several days in a row, pausing only for catnaps on work benches. Edison is primarily remembered as an inventor; yet no other professional inventor was ever engaged in so many businesses, or in so much manufacturing, selling, and "meeting of payrolls." After 1911, Edison's 30 different enterprises were combined in one corporation under the title of Thomas A. Edison, Inc. Although this firm often netted as much as $2,000,000 annually, Edison boasted that it never paid dividends. As fast as profits rolled in from an invention, Edison ploughed the funds into new research and development. Some biographers of the electrical wizard believe that he might have become the richest man in the world had he confined his energies to only one of the many fields he cultivated. But Edison was forever moving on to new endeavors. He was named the third greatest businessman in U. S. history in a University of Michigan poll of 423 business executives in 1967.
