"Ford Methods and the Ford Shops," 1919

Summary

This book tells the story of Ford's financial, industrial, and mechanical success. It was the brainstorm of the editors at The Engineering Magazine, who felt that it would benefit other manufacturers, managers, and engineers. The diversity of immigrants lured to Detroit to pursue automotive jobs -- many of them non-English-speaking -- is evident in the sample form published on page 59.
