Today, April 7, 2018, marks the 71st anniversary of the death of Henry Ford. Henry was born on July 30, 1863 and died on April 7, 1947. He was the most influential, innovative, American manufacturing icon not only in the USA but the world. Although he was not the inventor of the automobile, he perfected it and is known as the father of mass production and the automated assembly line. Henry was always thinking, always having visions of things to accomplish to help better mankind. He was ahead of the times for the most part having indulged in many projects that would also be attributed to him, such as hid soybean experiments, using the oil in paints, food, polymers for plastic part manufacturing. He was not a well educated man, couldn't read a blueprint, but could visualize part or device in his head and have others design, draw, and manufacture it. Rest in Peace Henry. You left your legacy on earth on this day....
