Meet the Author

Henry Ford (1863-1947) was an American industrialist, inventor, and businessman who founded Ford Motor Company. Born on a farm near Detroit, Ford despised farm work and left home at 16 to become an apprentice machinist. He eventually became a self-taught engineer at the Edison Illuminating Company, which gave him sufficient time to experiment with internal-combustion engines. He and several other investors founded Ford Motor Co. in 1903 and released the wildly successful Model T in 1908.
