The Benson Ford Research Center of The Henry Ford and the Ford Motor Company Archives jointly manage the historical records of the Ford Motor Company through the Ford Historical Resources Collaborative. The publicly-accessible records, which are available through the Benson Ford Research Center, include archival records, printed material, photographs, graphics, audio files, and video files.
To maintain a comprehensive record of Ford Motor Company, in 2007 we began the periodic web capture of the company’s website, Ford.com, which became Corporate.Ford.com in late 2010. The Ford Historical Resources Collaborative has partnered with San Diego State University to crawl and capture Corporate. Ford.com four times a year, save the data set in a preservation environment, and provide access through www.TheHenryFord.org. In this way, we can continue to serve the research needs of educators, students, scholars, writers, and automotive enthusiasts.
