Abstract:

The series is comprised of photographic prints and negatives created by the Ford Motor Company's first photographic department. Subjects cover all company activites from 1913 to 1954, with an emphasis on products, plants, and manufacturing processes. The photographic prints, arranged by topic, were removed from albums by archivists and housed in acid free folders; original topical order (non-alphabetical) was maintained. Subjects include Ford Motor Company plants, both foreign and domestic; manufacturing processes for Ford, Lincoln and Mercury automobiles; significant runs of trucks, buses, and tractors; the production of war material including airplanes, boats, munitions and vehicles; photographs of engineering parts drawings, production and instruction manuals; company visitors; personnel and employees including union activities; Ford Motor Company related schools such as apprentice schools, trade schools, army, navy, and air training schools; and images of Henry Ford, Edsel Ford, the Ford grandchildren, and the Ford Fair Lane estate. The series also includes a small run of photographs of a Ford plant in Mexico City that are attributed to Frida Kahlo and images of Diego Rivera working on the Detroit industry murals at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Negatives are arranged chronologically by negative number; a negative log briefly identifies individual photographs. Researchers should note that a large number of the images in this series were copied and copies were filed in Accession 1660, Photographic Prints Vertical File series.
