HURST Quarter Mile Times

On this day: 04-11-1888

Henry Ford marries

On this day in 1888, 24-year-old Henry Ford marries Clara Jane Bryant on her 22nd birthday at her parent´s home in Greenfield Township, Michigan. Clara Ford would prove to be a big supporter of her husband´s business ideas: Fifty years later, Henry Ford--who by then had founded the Ford Motor Company, invented the top-selling Model T car and revolutionized the auto industry with his mass-production technology--was quoted in a 1938 New York Times Magazine article as saying, "The greatest day of my life is when I married Mrs. Ford."
