Edsel Ford
Edsel Bryant Ford is an American business executive and philanthropist, the son of pioneering industrialist Henry Ford and his wife, Clara Jane Bryant. He was president of the Ford Motor Company from 1919 until his death in 1943. His eldest son was Henry Ford II, who succeeded him as president of Ford. He works closely with his father, the sole heir to the company, but wants to develop cars that are more interesting than the Model T, to suit his personal taste. Even as president, he struggled to convince his father to allow any deviation from this formula. Only a change in market conditions allowed him to develop a more fashionable Model A in 1927. Edsel also founded the Mercury division and was responsible for Lincoln-Zephyr and Lincoln Continental. It introduced important features, such as hydraulic brakes, and significantly boosted the company's overseas production. Ford is a major philanthropist in Detroit and has also sponsored Admiral Richard Byrd's polar expeditions.
