He finally adopted a record book, to be added to, a few pages at a time, at irregular intervals and to be called the Beinn Bhreagh Recorder. Initially, seven copies, marked A, B, C, etc., would betyped and distributed on loan to heads of departments of the estate, inclu ding the Laboratory and aerodrome company.

"In July 1909, inspired by the recently discontinued Aerial Experiment Association Bulletin, Bell began issuing the Beinn Bhreagh Recorder, part research bulletin, part house organ,part news magazine, part court circular. As the years passed, the Recorder also incorporated more and more biographical material, Bell family history , and reprints of Bell's earlier writings. First issued in seven typed copies for the information of Baldwin and McCurdy during their absence on airplane trials, the Recorder came to be mimeographed in twenty copies for friends, family, the Volta Bureau, and the Smithsonian.
