Henry Ford

(1863-1947)
In 1908, Henry Ford unveiled the Model T — “A car for anybody and everybody.” By 1927, there were more model Ts on the road than all other cars combined. Ironically, this was the same year that saw the end to the Model T. Ford was raised in Palestine Lodge #357, Detroit, in 1894. When he received his 33rd in 1940, he said, “Masonry is the best balance wheel the United States has.”
