Henry Ford lived from 1863 to 1947. He founded the Ford Motor Company at age 40. An American legend and a patriot, his manufacturing prowess in aviation helped bring about allied victory during World War II.[1]

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success,” said Ford. “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.”

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.
