Research Facts
The phonograph was invented by Thomas Edison; he patented it on 18 July 1877 as the first device for recording and playing sound; his first attempt was using telephone messages; his first test used waxed paper. Early cylinder machines of the late 1880s and 1890s were often sold with recording attachments. The ability to record as well as to play back sound was an advantage to cylinder phonographs over the competition from cheaper disc phonographs that began to be mass-marketed at the end of the 1890s, as the disc system machines could be used only to play back pre-recorded sound. Edison Records closed down in 1929, and Thomas Edison died in 1931. In 1906, the Indestructable Record Company began mass-marketing cylinder records made of celluloid, an early hard plastic that would not break if dropped and could be played thousands of times without wearing out. This hard, inflexible material could not be shaved and recorded over like wax cylinders, but had the advantage of being a nearly perfect record. The U.S. Phonograph Company of Cleveland, Ohio, produced both two- and four-minute cylinders under its own label, "U.S. Everlasting Records," and under the Lakeside label for Montgomery Ward department stores. Between 1908 and 1912, more than 1,000 titles were released in three series: popular, foreign language, and grand opera. Like Edison, Blue Amberols, and indestructible cylinders, Everlasting cylinders were made of celluloid, but their sound quality is superior to either of them. The Medicophone Post-Graduate Co., a part of U.S. Everlasting Records, produced a series of recordings to provide professional medical advice on a variety of diseases and topics for physicians. Cylinder is noted as series title # X-221. In 1968, the celluloid cylinders were professionally recorded on magnetic tape by the Syracuse University Libraries Re-recording Laboratory. The complete series is stored on a master and duplicate reels. This title is found on reels 1977.11.40 and .46.

Fenwick was survived by his third wife of only six months, Miriam MacPherson, and three children from earlier marriages. Facing much sadness, Fenwick was twice widowed. His first wife died of tuberculosis; his second wife died after falling down the stairs shortly after giving birth to a daughter. The Fenwick family lived at 141 King St. E. in what is now the Hotel Belvedere.
