THE PHONOGRAPH ON THIS DAY IN 1877

Thomas Alva Edison with his cylinder phonograph in 1878.

Thomas Edison is known for his many inventions, but his favorite was the
phonograph which was created while working on improvements to the
telegraph and the telephone. He figured out a way to record sound on
tinfoil-coated cylinders with two needles, one for recording and one
for playback. His first words he recorded on the new machine were,
”Mary had a little lamb”.

Ruth Graves Wakefield (June 17, 1903 – January 10, 1977)

It is often incorrectly reported that the chocolate chip cookie was
an accident, and that Wakefield expected the chocolate chunks to
melt making chocolate cookies. In reality, Wakefield stated that she
deliberately invented the cookie. She said, "We had been serving a
thin butterscotch nut cookie with ice cream. Everybody seemed
to love it, but I was trying to give them something different. So I
came up with Toll House cookie." (
