These biographical sketches and career highlights reflect the people of high caliber employed by Henry Ford to accomplish his goals: Harry Bennett, Albert Kahn, Ernest Kanzler, William S. Knudsen, and Charles E. Sorensen, among others. Most were employed by Ford Motor Company, although a few of them were Ford's personal employees satisfying concurrent needs of a more private nature, including his farming, educational, and sociological ventures. It is significant to note that many of these same men were cast off by Ford. Some of the dispossessed left his employment and became more prominent in their own right than when under Ford's dominance. Ford Bryan obtained a considerable amount of the material in this book from the oral reminiscences of the subjects themselves. He also used the collections of the Archives and Library of Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village, the Bentley Library of the University of Michigan, the Cranbrook Archives and Historical Collections, and the Burton Historical Collection. Although the lives of thirty-five lieutenants are described in this book, many more individuals contributed to Ford's success; the author acknowledges them in Appendix I. Additional acquaintances of Henry Ford, those who have given oral accounts of their association with Ford, the man, or Ford Motor Company, are listed in Appendix II

Clara : Mrs. Henry Ford by Ford R Bryan( Book )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: "In telling the story of Clara Ford, author Ford Bryan also charts the course of the growing automobile industry and the life of the enigmatic man at its helm. But the book's heart is Clara herself-daughter, sister, wife, mother, and grandmother; cook, gardener, and dancer; modest philanthropist and quiet role model." "Clara is newly revealed in accounts and documents gleaned from personal papers, oral histories, and archival material never made public until now. These include receipts and recipes, diaries and genealogies, and more than 175 photographs."
