Edison's Last Breath at the Henry Ford Museum

The test tube itself didn't turn up until 1950 when it was catalogued in the Ford estate after Clara Ford's passing, and then promptly lost again until 1978 when it was discovered "in its cardboard mailing tube along with the hat and shoes under one of the display cases in an exhibit entitled, 'Henry Ford—A Personal History' in the Henry Ford Museum. It would then be discovered that the tube was labeled "Edison’s Last Breath?"
