Henry Ford - Town Planner

Henry Ford did many things in his active life. Chuck Eckenstahler has written an interesting article about Ford's town planning and development efforts.

"Ford’s legacy is a “car guy” – but he also experimented with town planning necessitated by the need to transport from remote locations coal, wood, and metal natural resources required for the making of automobiles. "

"Fordlandia chronicles his efforts to tame 75 miles of Amazon jungle necessary to provide rubber for auto production."
