Abstract:

The Estate subgroup primarily contains material pertaining to the estate of Henry and Clara Ford after Clara's death, including documents accumulated earlier having a bearing on the liquidation of the estate. There are five series in the subgroup. The Henry Ford Fair Lane Office records series, 1895-1951 (0.8 cubic ft.), Acc. 384 and Acc. 844, consists of correspondence, financial papers, expense reports, and legal papers once maintained by Leslie J. Thompson, manager of accounts at the Ford estate. Records document a variety of Ford family activities, most significantly properties, yachts, travel, and charitable contributions. The Office of Clara Ford records series, 1920-1950 (6.4 cubic ft.), Acc. 290, are similarly related to Ford financial activities and are comprised of cancelled checks, disbursing vouchers, receipts, bank statements, and deposit slips. The Office of Henry Ford and Clara Ford Estate records series, 1832-1955 (62.4 cubic ft., 4 oversize boxes, 27 card files, and 5 volumes), Acc. 587, which is described separately, consists of tax returns, deeds, titles, abstracts, purchase records, property descriptions, and vouchers. The records, maintained during the dissolution of the estate after Clara's death, also include Henry Ford personal correspondence, some Ford Motor Company documentation, as well as material on the Edison Institute Schools, Ford dance parties, the Ford cemetery and various other topics relating to Henry and Clara Ford's personal Business interests. Closely related is the Clara Ford Estate records series, 1947-1955 (2 cubic ft. and 1 card file), Acc. 588, which includes disbursement files, cancelled checkes, claims on the estate, and sympathy cards. The Memorials series, 1943-1955 (3.4 cubic ft. and 2 oversize boxes), Acc. 1136 and Acc. 1390, is comprised of condolence letters, testimonials and bound remembrances of Edsel B. Ford and bound memorials and prayers in remembrance of Henry and Clara J. Ford. Throughout this and other collections, Clara Ford is referred to as both Clara J. Ford and Clara B. Ford, reflecting her middle name of Josephine and her maiden name of Bryant.
