He also found a new friend in Henry Ford, the automobile magnate. Ford had been an  admirer of Edison for many years, before he invented the Model T and became a  wealthy, well-known industrialist himself. In 1907, a year before the Model T came out on  the market, Ford had even sent Edison a request for a photograph. He claimed he  wanted to have photographs of "three of the greatest inventors of this age" in his den at  the factory. The two men met in 1896 and were good friends throughout the 1910s and  1920s. They even took a series of gypsy car trips over the United States, providing the  press with delightful photo opportunities. They had much in common in regards to  business practices and the industry of invention. Sadly, they also shared the same anti- Semitism.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
