[ 18-10-2003 ] Edison Dies (18th October 1931)
Thomas Alva Edison, one of great inventors in history, dies in West Orange, New Jersey, at the age of 84.
Edison was born in Milan, Ohio, in 1847. He went little formal schooling, which was customary for most Americans at the time. He developed serious hearing problems at an early age, and this disability provided the motivation for many of his inventions.
