Did Thomas Edison invent the Electric Chair? Webmaster note: On the original North Country Criminal Justice History "Electrical Executions at Clinton Prison" page this question was linked to a page on an external web site about inventors. But that URL is no longer valid. A link to an NYCHS page about Edison and the electric chair has been substituted.
