The making of a genius

Thomas Alva Edison, one of the most famous inventors of all time, started his career in relative obscurity. The inventor of the phonograph, light bulb and motion picture camera was just twenty-two when he set out to be a full-time inventor, in the year 1869. With financial backing from partners, he founded multiple ventures. The first of these was the American Telegraph Works, founded in 1870, set up for Edison to work on his field of expertise- improving telegraphic equipment.
