Lyhyt elämäkerta
Elma Ehrlich was born in Chicago, Illinois. At 18, she started working as a teacher in rural schools in Iowa and Illinois for two years. After attending the University of Chicago in 1908-1909 and Radcliffe College in 1911-1912, studying English and drama, she became a Jewish education teacher. She worked as the director of a junior drama league in Chicago and as director of entertainment for the Bureau of Jewish Education in New York City. In 1916, she married Lee J. Levinger, who later became a rabbi at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Menlo Park, California, and had three children. Elma Ehrlich Levinger and her husband co-wrote The Story of the Jew for Young People (1929). As editor of the magazine Jewish Child and as the author of more than 30 books for children and adults, Elma Levinger sought to build a strong cultural identity among American Jewish youth in the process of assimilation. Her series of tales In Many Lands (1923), emphasizes the role of different traditions in connecting Jews worldwide. Elma Ehrlich Levinger served as a member of the National Council of Jewish Women’s National Committee on Religion, the National Council for Prevention of War, the Birth Control League, and Hadassah.

Front the book flap:

"Thomas Alva Edison was born in Milan, Ohio, one hundred years ago. His is the story of an amazingly active and creative life. He never went to school and received all of his education from his mother, a former school teacher. When he was twelve, he got a job as a newsboy and candy butcher on a train running between Port Huron, Michigan and Detroit. In a corner of the baggage car he set up his first experimental laboratory.

Young Edison saved the life of the son of a station agent and the grateful father taught him telegraphy. This led him to Boston to work as a telegraph operator and then to New York. His passion for experiment continued and it was not long before he had invented a stock ticker for which he received forty thousand dollars.

He continued to work and experiment in other fields and in 1879 his invention of the incandescent electric lamp caused a sensation which made the world follow with keenest interest the "antics" of the young man in the chemical-stained linen duster and dilapidated slouch hat.

In all, over a thousand patents were issued to Thomas Edison, dealing with electric power distribution, the alkaline storage battery, the mimeograph, the electric pen, and microphone. He also discovered the basis for wireless telegraphy and radio, and developed new processes for cement production and the manufacture of chemicals and dyes, and the production of rubber from goldenrod."
