and His “Nerve Retreat” at Haven Hill

He was a man of vision and achievement,
and he called Haven Hill his "nerve retreat," his restful refuge. The only child of Henry and Clara Ford, Edsel Ford was born in 1893 and became the youngest president of Ford Motor Company in 1919. Despite difficulties with his father, he successfully led plant expansions and the operation of the Willow Run Bomber Plant during World War II. His sense for art and design was expressed in his major support for the Detroit Institute of Arts and in his design leadership for the Model A and Lincoln Continental automobiles.
