In a masterful piece of historical research and writing, award winning author and historian Henry Dominguez delivers a huge amount of new information in “The Last Days of Henry Ford”, revealing recently discovered details of the last year of Henry Ford’s life.
The 366-page book offers new insight into a man whose life has been the subject of countless books and articles, but is now made more complete, in no small part due to the transcriptions of recorded interviews with the Ford family’s long time maid, Rosa Buhler, the only staff member who lived full-time in the house with the Fords. Those interviews, which were secretly taped in the late 1970s, provide almost an hour-by-hour account of Henry Ford’s last days and nights. These and other staff interviews, previously not transcribed in detail, combined with the author’s research and contacts with 38 eyewitnesses, add many new fascinating details to the life story of this important, but complex, founding father of the mass-produced automobile.
