Ford Motor Company Clipping Book, Volume 2, January 6-10, 1914

Summary

Henry Ford's office kept a file of newspaper articles from across the country that covered Ford Motor Company and other topics of interest to Henry. These pages are from the days following Ford's announcement of the $5 per day profit sharing plan in January 1914. While Ford's primary objective was reducing turnover; the $5 day was also excellent publicity.
