Chairman of the Board, Ford Motor Company

President's Cabinet Award



President of Ford Motor Company from 1945 to 1960.


Leader of one of the world's great industrial enterprises, you have consistently set new and higher standards for business responsibility to the larger society it serves.  In word and in actions you have addressed in a clear and forthright manner the social and economic problems that go far beyond the interests of any one organization, affecting our entire community, national and world. Though your concerns are world-wide, we in Detroit are especially proud to claim you as one of our own and to honor you for the new energy and hope you have generated in this great community.

Award was presented on May 20, 1972 in Cobo Hall by Fr. Malcolm Carron, S.J., President of the University.
