Johnson, E. R. Fenimore  
His Master's Voice Was Edlridge R. Johnson: A Biography
 Picture
Publisher: State Media, Inc., 1974 Milford, DE.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "My father, Eldridge Reeves Johnson, was one of the industrialists who played a substantial part in the building up of the prosperity of this country to the point where it has become the envy of the world. That in itself was a commonplace event in the late 19th and 20th centuries. In itself it is not a sufficiently outstanding performance to warrant remembering any one man beyond the many who participated in our national growth. My father was not the inventor of the talking machine. He was always quick to give the credit to Thomas A. Edison, to whom that honor solely belongs. My father was the inventor of many improvements of the basic device but there were many other talking machine inventors of equal importance, especially Emil Berliner. My reason for regarding my father as deserving to be remembered is that he is the one man who by personal greatness halted the petty quarrels which were retarding the progress of the newborn industry, and then by his inventive and business genius made it possible for the first time in the world's history for good music to be heard in even the most humble home. In this day in which music is heard everywhere at any time we have no conception of how little music entered into the life of the average person only one hundred years ago. Soon after he founded the Victor Talking Machine Company of Camden, New Jersey, talking machines made their way all over the world. Travellers encountered them from the Eskimos' arctic igloos to the thatched huts of the tropics. They became fixtures in all classes of homes. They were almost invariably a feature of the plush parlors of the rich and the great. Seventy-five percent of these pleasure-giving machines bore the 'His Master's Voice' dog and talking machine trade mark which my father, in his wisdom, made famous by placing it on products of only the very finest quality. The secret of his success was a quality product sold always at a fair price. For this feat of putting 'The Gift That Keeps on Giving' into the homes of the common man, I believe that Eldridge Reeves Johnson should not be forgotten." Illustrated with photographs. viii + 179 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. No dust jacket.
