Thomas Edison gave his first public demonstration of incandescent lighting to an audience in Menlo Park, NJ. on this day in 1879.

The Pennsylvania Railroad Company ran special trains to Menlo Park on the
day of the demonstration in response to public enthusiasm over the event.

Although the first incandescent lamp had been produced 40 years earlier, no inventor had been able to come up with a practical design until Edison, after
countless tests, developed a high-resistance carbon-thread filament that
burned steadily for hours and an electric generator sophisticated enough to
power a large
lighting system.

Thomas Edison’s greatest contribution to the modern industrial world came
from his work in electricity. He acquired 1,093 patents in his lifetime and
died in 1931 at the age of 84.

Roy Linwood Clark (April 15, 1933 – November 15, 2018)


(Fox News) – Country star Roy Clark, the legendary singer and multi-
instrumentalist with an ear-to-ear smile who headlined the hit TV show
"Hee Haw" for nearly a quarter century, has died.

A rep for the singer told Fox News Clark died on Thursday at his Tulsa,
OK., home due to complications from pneumonia.

Clark was the "Hee Haw" host or co-host for its entire 24-year run, with
Buck Owens his best-known co-host. The country music and comedy
show’s last episode aired in 1993, though reruns continued for a few
years thereafter. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame
in 2009.
