La compaa perdi su dominio en el mercado , pero tuvo un impacto duradero en otro desarrollo tecnolgico y la infraestructura EE. Primeros aos El famoso fabricante de automviles Henry Ford naci el 30 de julio de , en la granja de su familia en el condado de Wayne , cerca de Dearborn, Michigan. Cuando Ford tena 15 aos , su padre le regal un reloj de bolsillo , que el joven tom rpidamente aparte y vuelto a montar. Amigos y vecinos estaban impresionados , y solicitaron que arreglar sus relojes tambin.
Unsatistfied los trabajos del campo , Ford se fue de casa al ao siguiente, a la edad de 16 , para tomar como aprendiz de maquinista en Detroit. En los aos que siguieron, l aprendera a manejar con destreza y servicio de las mquinas de vapor , y sera tambin estudiar contabilidad. Pero tres aos ms tarde , fue contratado como ingeniero para la Edison Illuminating Company.
In the same year, he attended a meeting with Edison executives and found himself presenting his automobile plans to Thomas Edison. The lighting genius encouraged Ford to build a second, better model. By , Ford was awarded with his first patent for a carburetor. In , with money raised from investors following the development of a third model car, Ford left Edison Illuminating Company to pursue his car-making business full-time. Later, in , Ford and his family established the Ford Foundation to provide ongoing grants for research, education and development.
In business, Ford offered profit sharing to select employees who stayed with the company for six months and, most important, who conducted their lives in a respectable manner. He even went as far as to support a weekly newspaper, The Dearborn Independent, which furthered such views.
Bennett's bullies attacking an unknown organizer. Thanks to the miraculous preservation of the photographic record; the world at last found out what was really going on behind the scenes at the Ford fiefdom: Ford's only son Edsel was totally disgusted with the behavior of the Service Department and urged his father to negotiate with the union.
The aroused the enmity of his father and was one of the reasons why his father had him murdered in Ford's B bomber factory never got off the ground!! When Ford financed Adolf Hitler declared war on the U. Ford did not disappoint him. In , the U. Ford boasted that he would soon be producing a bomber every hour.
Ford financed Hitler before the war and he was very reluctant to have his factories in Germany and France bombed. That is why Willow Run bomber factory never really got off the ground. Willow Run was later called Will-it Run?
Willow Run was about 30 miles from Detroit with only 2 railway lines connecting it to the city. Ford forgot to build housing for his workers. None of Bennett's goons harassed the workers at that factory for not producing. As a matter of fact, working too fast could get you fired!! Instead of one plane an hour as Ford boasted, the factory only produced a total of 8, planes during the entire war. That was quite OK with Ford because he didn't want any bombs falling on his friend Hitler or on his busy Ford factories in Germany and France.
Adolf Hitler said this about his friend Henry Ford: Edsel Ford was murdered in As president, he was only a figurehead, as the company was run by Ford and Bennett. Edsel Bryant Ford Edsel Ford was a Ford with a human face. He never agreed with his father's Gestapo tactics and therefore he had a timely demise.
A car was named after him called the Edsel. It was a colossal flop for Ford. If all gasoline powered cars were flops like the Edsel, Islam would be extinct today. The Ford Edsel was a flop. Edsel was a Ford with a human face totally opposite in temperament to his father. He clashed with his father over the brutal treatment of the workers and was determined to resign several times.
When he saw the Willow Run factory producing inferior planes and lying idle most of the time he was disgusted and threatened to resign. Vital links. Thomas Edison unmasked at last!!

I met him first many years ago when I was with the Detroit Edison Company, —probably about or thereabouts. The electrical men held a convention at Atlantic City, and Edison, as the leader in electrical science, made an address.
I was then working on my gasoline engine, and most people, including all of my associates in the electrical company, had taken pains to tell me that time spent on a gasoline engine was time wasted—that the power of the future was to be electricity. These criticisms had not made any impression on me. I was working ahead with all my might.
But being in the same room with Edison suggested to me that it would be a good idea to find out if the master of electricity thought it was going to be the only power in the future.
So, after Mr. Edison had finished his address, I managed to catch him alone for a moment. I told him what I was working on. At once he was interested. He is interested in every search for new knowledge. And then I asked him if he thought that there was a future for the internal combustion engine. He answered something in this fashion.
