    Lewis Howard Latimer (September 4, – Decem ) was an American inventor and patent draftsman for the patents of the light bulb and improved Thomas Edison's original invention by patenting the use of a carbon filament which made possible the widespread use of electric light in public and at home. Other clippings pertain to electric light demonstrations at Menlo Park, to the formation of the Edison Electric Light Co., and to patent litigation involving the electric light. There is also material about electric railways and about the controversy between Edison and David E. Hughes over the carbon telephone.
