Henry Ford’s Classical Violins

The press took note of Henry Ford’s classical violin acquisitions. This Albany, New York newspaper article, published in January 1926, exaggerated the price Ford paid for his violins. (The figure was probably closer to $100,000.) But the article clearly linked Ford’s classical violin purchases to his interest in “old tunes and fiddlers.” THF109925
