These biographical sketches and career highlights reflect the people of high caliber employed by Henry Ford to accomplish his goals: Harry Bennett, Albert Kahn, Ernest Kanzler, William S. Knudsen, and Charles E. Sorenson, among others. Most were employed by the Ford Motor Company, although a few of them were Fords personal employees satisfying concurrent needs of a more private nature, including his farming, educational, and sociological ventures.Ford Bryan obtained a considerable amount of the material in this book from the oral reminiscences of the subjects themselves.
