Ford Motor Company Clipping Book, Volume 44, January 1926

Summary

The press took note of Henry Ford's classical violin acquisitions during the mid-1920s. This Albany, New York newspaper article, published in January 1926, exaggerated the price Ford paid for his centuries-old violins made by Italian masters like Antonio Stradivari. (The figure was probably closer to $100,000.) But the article clearly linked Ford's violin purchases to his interest in "old tunes and fiddlers."
