Henry Ford

As far as philanthropy projects, Ford distrusted organized charities. He preferred to give small gifts to individuals in spontaneous acts. Ford gave most philanthropy face to face with a firm handshake. He and his wife created Valley Farm, which is an 80 acre farm for orphan boys. He also paid for two work camps for boys during the Great Depression and much more. Ford is seemed to have donated 33%of his income to philanthropy.

Ford was an anti-Semitic who printed racist editorials in his newspaper which he startedfor the purpose of spreadinganti-Semitism.

He greatly admired Adolph Hitler.

Ford was an industrialist and an innovator. He had self confidence, risk-taking abilities, and showed a lot of leadership.
