Henry Ford Medal
By Rick Black, Webmaster
In June 2009, I got an e-mail with a photo from Diana Hudson and Ron Ludford asking about a medal showing the profile of Henry Ford and a medical symbol. The writer was curious about the medal's origins. I did some 'googling' but didn't find much information.

What follows are excerpts from e-mails I have received regarding the medal and its origins.
