THE LAST BILLIONAIRE by William R. Richards


Email this review


Anecdotal reminiscences of Henry Ford, that makes no attempt at formal biography, interpretation or appraisal, that merely presents the man as the author, a news-paperman, knew him over the years, and through the eyes of associates and friends. There are entertaining chapters on his hobbies,- folk dancing, collecting, reconstructions, ant prohibitions, -- on his convictions and their evaluation- on his zeal and genius- and on the fact and fable of the man himself. There are bits of his family life; the many controversial industrial issues which centered around him are given full space, but with no judgment offered. There are scenes of Ford with his colleagues, acquaintances, and employees. A treasurehouse of Ford material, clarifying some conflicting opinions, providing a mobile profile of the motormaker.
