Title: Putting America on Wheels: Henry Ford and the Culture of Mass Consumption
Contact: ,
Location: Pokagon Room
Description: Automaker Henry Ford put American on wheels and helped create modern urban America. He pioneered the idea that the mass production of cars also required the mass consumption of not only our needs, but our wants. But this innovator who stressed the value of hard work was also an enigma. He disliked physical labor, was anti-Semitic, had a mistress and led a “back-to-the-farm” movement.
