Abstract:

The series is comprised of photographs and negatives, primarily relating to Henry Ford's personal life and activities, arranged sequentially by negative number. Access is best achieved through two subject card files available in the Benson Ford Research Center reading room. The first indexes general subjects alphabetically and the second indexes antiques. A negative log, which provides a brief description and date for each image, is also available. Especially well represented are Henry's antiquarian interests, including images of towns and buildings and antique objects. Many of the photographed objects eventually became part of the collections of The Edison Institute (now The Henry Ford), which is also well documented in early photographs depicting the evolution of Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. There are also images of the residences and gardens of Henry and Clara Ford as well as the residences of Edsel and Eleanor Ford; portraits of Henry Ford, Edsel Ford, and other family members; portraits of Ford executives and visitors; and photographs of the camping experiences of Henry Ford with his "vagabond" friends Thomas Edison, John Burroughs, and Harvey Firestone. In addition there is extensive visual documentation of Ford Motor Company related activities at Ford Farms, Henry Ford Trade School, and Ford Village Industries. Other topics include lumbering, early aviation, and early applications of electricity. Researchers should note that many of these images were copied and filed in the Photographic Prints Vertical File, Accession 1660, under various subject headings.
