THE INDUSTRIALIST
CAREER
In 1891, Ford became an engineer with the Edison Illuminating Company
Ford resigned from the Edison Company and founded the Detroit Automobile Company on August 5, 1899
However, the automobiles produced were of a lower quality and higher price than Ford wanted. Ultimately, the company was not successful and was dissolved in January 1901
The Model T was introduced on October 1, 1908
MODEL T
The ford model T is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the car that opened travel to the common middle-class American

The Model T set 1908 as the historic year that the automobile became popular. The first production Model T was produced on August 12, 1908[5] and left the factory on September 27, 1908, at the Piquette Plant in Detroit, Michigan. On May 26, 1927, Henry Ford watched the 15 millionth Model T Ford roll off the assembly line at his factory in Highland Park, Michigan
LEGACY
Henry Ford had laid the foundation of the twentieth century. The assembly line became the century’s characteristic production mode, eventually applied to everything from phonographs to hamburgers. The vast quantities of war material turned out on those assembly lines were crucial to the Allied victory in World War II. High wage, low skilled factory jobs pioneered by Ford accelerated both immigration from overseas and the movement of Americans from the farms to the cities. The same jobs also accelerated the movement of the same people into an ever expanding middle class. In a dramatic demonstration of the law of unintended consequences, the creation of huge numbers of low skilled workers gave rise in the 1930s to industrial unionism as a potent social and political force. The Model T spawned mass automobility, altering our living patterns, our leisure activities, our landscape, even our atmosphere.
