Abstract:

Documents in Edsel Ford's office were filed in two ways. Most correspondence was filed alphabetically by company name or personal name. Other items were gathered together around topics and filed in subject files. Correspondence that was voluminous on a single topic was also placed in a subject file. The Subject Files series is comprised of Edsel Ford office correspondence with individuals and companies arranged alphabetically by subject. In some cases where the files are large, subject headings were further subdivided. Included among the topics are names of companies and organizations in which Edsel Ford had an active interest. Of particular note are reports and correspondence sent to Edsel Ford from branches, both foreign and domestic, as well as reports and correspondence regarding Ford Motor Company of Canada and Ford Motor Company, Ltd. and associated companies. Other Ford related topics include special deliveries of Ford automobiles; Ford sponsored radio programs; Ford World War II activities; Ford participation in fairs and exhibitions; and Edsel Ford speeches. Edsel Ford's many community and philanthropic involvements are also well documented. Examples include the Detroit Aviation Society, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Detroit University School, the Edison Institute, Henry Ford Hospital, the Henry Ford Trade School, the Lincoln Highway Association, the Museum of Modern Art, and the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. There are also records that lean more toward Edsel Ford's personal activities, such as vacations, automobiles he purchased, and Christmas correspondence. Individual correspondents in the series include Admiral Richard E. Byrd and Walter Dorwin Teague. Researchers should note that there is overlap with the Personal Files series and the General Correspondence series where documents on many of the same subjects can also be found.
