Z Online Class: A Zoom invitation link will be sent one day before class begins.
Henry Ford was so much more than just the biographical information available in any number of books written in the last 100 years. In this session, Steven Stanford will explore Henry Ford through some little-known aspects of Ford’s life, as well as through his relationships with family, friends, and famous people. The truism “we are known by the company we keep” applies to Henry Ford more than many historical figures. Join us as we explore some of those individuals whose lives intersected with Mr. Ford’s and helped make him the man he was. Note: Two more classes in February and March will explore additional aspects of Henry Ford.
Steven Stanford is a Henry Ford scholar who has published numerous programs and articles about Mr. Ford. He is the editor of The Ford Legend, a 24-page newsletter published three times each year by the Henry Ford Heritage Association.
