AMERICAN EXPERIENCE

Henry Ford "Camping" with Edison and Firestone

  • Aired: 01/29/2013
  • 01:23
  • Rating: NR
For many years, Henry Ford took annual camping trips with the "vagabonds" - his close friends Thomas Edison, Harvey Firestone and John Burroughs - with an entourage of servants, photographers, friends and family often in tow. On several occasions a president even joined along - President Harding in 1921 and Coolidge in 1923. Here, the group dined around a giant lazy Susan during their 1923 trip.
