Achievements

He invented the Model T automobile. This invention completely revolutionized the world of his day. He mass produced his Model T using the assembly line, making cars affordable to the common person for the first time ever. He also paid his workers very well, which, in the long run, paid off as he was creating his own consumers. That too was a new idea. He was also a noted inventor with 161 U.S. patents to his credit.

Activism

Henry Ford was a notorious anti-Semite. [1] He was responsible for the publication, in the U.S. of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and several other pamphlets aimed against the Jewish people. He even wrote his own anti-Semitic book The International Jew, a work deeply admired by Hitler, who is reported to have said the text gave him a great deal of support and strength. [2] In fact, Ford was so admired by Hitler that Hitler kept a picture of Ford in his office, credited Ford in Mein Kampf and awarded Ford the Grand Service Cross of the Supreme Order of the German Eagle.
