CARS, CLOCKS, AND WATCHES SYMPOSIUM AT THE HENRY FORD MUSEUM

CARS, CLOCKS, AND WATCHES SYMPOSIUM AT THE HENRY FORD MUSEUM

Henry Ford’s early and lifelong passion for timekeepers, and the important connections between 19th-century New England watch manufacturing and 20th-century automobile mass-production, have never before been comprehensively examined.   With a roster of important speakers and at the perfect venue, these themes will be developed at the September 20-22 symposium sponsored by the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors.   Speakers also will address the history of car clocks, timing of auto races, and the important collection of clocks and related tooling at the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village.

Museum or NAWCC membership is not required, and all are welcome to attend the conference.  It opens with a private after-hours reception and dinner in the museum, followed by a day and picnic lunch in Greenfield Village, a next day of presentations in the museum auditorium, and a candlelight evening banquet in the Eagle Tavern.

Details and registration are at www.carsclocksandwatches.com and by contacting symposium chairman Bob Frishman, [email protected].
