While working as an engineer for the Edison Illuminating Company in Detroit, Henry Ford (1863-1947) built his first gasoline-powered horseless carriage, the Quadricycle, in the shed behind his home. In 1903, he established the Ford Motor Company, and five years later the company rolled out the first Model T
✨ Henry Ford Trivia
★ The only American favorably mentioned in Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf".
★ Founder of the Ford Motor Company.
★ Inventor of the Ford Model T car in 1908.
★ Inducted into the Barbeque Hall of Fame in 2012 (inaugural class).
In 1922 "The New York Times" reported that Adolf Hitler's office contained a large picture of Ford. A well-thumbed copy of "The International Jew" was found in his library. It was a four-volume set of booklets and pamphlets published and distributed in the early 1920s by Ford. The rabidly anti-Semitic texts first appeared in Ford's own newspaper, "The Dearborn Independent". The paper reached a circulation of 900,000 by 1925, second only to the "New York Daily News", largely due to a quota system for promotion imposed on Ford dealers. Lawsuits regarding anti-Semitic material published in the paper caused Ford to close it, and the last issue was published in December 1927.
In July 1938, before the outbreak of World War II, the German consul in Cleveland gave Ford, on his 75th birthday, the award of the "Grand Cross of the German Eagle", the highest medal that Nazi Germany could bestow on a foreigner who sympathized with the Nazi cause.
✨ Henry Ford Quotes:
"Every time I reduce the price of the car by one dollar I get one thousand new buyers."
"History is more or less bunk. It's tradition. We don't want tradition. We want to live in the present and the only history that's worth a tinker's dam is the history we make today."
"Say you can or say you can't, either way you're right."
