Abstract:

The Fair Lane papers subgroup documents every aspect of the Fords' private, public, and business lives with family documents dating as far back as 1835. The papers are organized into four series. The Personal and Family papers series, 1835-1950 (48 cubic ft.), consists of biographical and personal materials relating to members of the Ford family; the Fair Lane mansion and other Ford residences; family legal and financial materials; social correspondence; materials which document family activities; and files on various subjects of personal interest to the Fords. The Public Affairs materials series, 1917-1945 (18.8 cubic ft.), includes documentation on a number of Ford activities and initiatives which were of a highly visible and public nature. These include newspaper publishing, education, restoration, collecting, pacifism, philanthropy, politics, radio broadcasting, music and dancing. The Business Affairs materials series, 1897-1955 (7.2 cubic ft.), is comprised of two subseries, Automotive Businesses and Non-Automotive Businesses and Enterprises. The first includes materials on each of the automobile manufacturing companies in which Henry Ford was involved. The second consists of material on a number of other business ventures, such as Detroit, Toledo, and Ironton Railroad and Henry Ford Hospital. Oversize boxes hold material related to each of the first three series, including awards and tributes to Henry and Clara Ford; scrapbook pages; sketches and drawings; genealogical and family history documents; greeting cards; and business records.
