"From Roots to Branches: The Life of Henry Ford", presented by Steven Stanford  (GSWC Meetings - Programs)
1:30 pm
Education Center Auditorium, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Campus, 5305 Elliott Dr., Ypsilanti, Michigan
The man behind the Model T and $5 day comes into focus as we learn about the people closest to him in his life - his family.  Henry Ford's father and mother, his siblings, his wife, his son, and grandchildren all played important roles as Henry went from being a tinkerer to a tycoon.  The stories of these people help us understand more about Henry Ford than can be learned in the history books.  What of Henry's relationship with Evangeline Dahlinger?  This talk examines her importance in his life as well.
