Portrait of Madeleine Edison Sloane in the Drawing Room at Glenmont

This Painting of Thomas Edison's daughter Madeleine hangs at Glenmont. Demonstrating typical Edison independence, Madeleine married John Eyre Sloane in the Drawing Room at Glenmont on June 17, 1914. Her parents were not pleased. They would have preferred their daughter to marry the son of an industrialist, not an aviator. Mina Edison was especially upset that her new son-in-law was a Catholic.
