Excerpt from Automotive Giants of America Men Who Are Making Our Motor Industry

Curiously although our automobile industry is young, its leaders are not young men. The average age of the twenty foremost is a shade under fifty-five. Only three of them are in the forties.

Every one of the twenty is self-made. Most of them had only a moderate amount of schooling. Nine had some college training.

Few of them started life in any mechanical or engineering line of work. Office boys lead. Grocery boys and farm boys are well represented.

Not one of the twenty comes from the Far-West. The East and the Middle-West gave birth to most of them, although the South can claim three. Ohio produced four, New York three and Michigan three. Only one was not born in America, a record probably not matched by any other industry of first importance.
