Heather Barrow, Author; John Beck, Michigan State University; Matt Anderson, Henry Ford Museum. Topic: Ford & Suburbs.

You might know Dearborn, Michigan as the home of the Ford Motor Company. But what you may not know is that Henry Ford wanted to make the city the model suburb for the rest of America. Join John McElroy as he welcomes author and historian Heather Barrow as she highlights the Ford philosophy as it moved from the factory floor to mass suburbanization.
