The “lights were turned on” at the Edison Electric Light Company as it began operation on October 15, 1878. The Libra born Edison Electric Light Company incorporated emerged on 15th October 1878, and was founded in order to give Edison financial assistance for his electric light experiments. In return Edison would allow them to control the resulting patents that came from any results.
It was through this company that Edison first applied the term “filament” to the element of glowing wire carrying current in a light bulb. However, Joseph Swan, an English inventor had already used this term prior to these findings, which has been the cause for some controversy. By 1890, the company merged with several other Edison companies to become the Edison General Electric Company as Edison tried to pool all of his resources in order to not only progress, but to also ward off the competition. Those born on October 15th, or indeed in this case, the company born on October 15th could be seen to strive for excellence and stands out with its abilities.

Character of Industry or Persons born on the 15th of October
There could be some financial losses, due to an excess in confidence or perhaps even some slight carelessness. However, this is a sensitive character that could be susceptible to others’ influences. Those born from this day can sometimes upset their parents or educators, this can even come in the form of unexpected outbursts.

In terms of the Edison Electric Light Company Incorporated we could say that we could see this in the company’s change in 1892. Charles Coffin, leading Thomson-Houston Electric Company, acquired a number of competitors and gained access to their rival’s key patents. So in 1892 the companies combined to form a new organization: the General Electric Company. Independently they were strong in their own right, but their potential to continue to work away from each other was becoming increasing more difficult. By joining forces, both ‘teams’ could survive and create something new.
