    1. If you are a Detroiter it is still impossible to not recognize the impact of Henry Ford. I think half my extended family worked at Ford’s at some point (and the other half for GM). Then there are the many small stories we hear of personal interactions with Henry or with one of his family. My grandmothers’ brother, for example, sort of knew Edsel for a time. As a young Fuller Brush door-to-door salesman I recall meeting the parents of one of Henry II’s wives. They were so proud of their connection, in fact, that they invited in young Charles for tea and a lengthy monologue about “the family”. I don’t recall if they bought any brushes.
