Edison Phonograph's Double
Service - Amusement and Language Study
Phonograph began "colloboration" with the International
Correspondence Schools (I.C.S.) of Scranton, PA in 1903.
Service became an Edison advertising theme to emphasize
the employment of Edison Records for Amusement and Language
in the Edison Phonograph Monthly of August 1903 noted
that the I.C.S.'s Manager was reporting "very satisfactory
progress in the matter of having I.C.S. language outfits handled
by the trade."
Edison's advertising campaign included a calendar each month
with a different example of this Double Service."
