From The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan:
For nearly a decade, The Henry Ford has worked to digitize its unparalleled collection of artifacts that tell the story of America’s traditions of ingenuity, resourcefulness and innovation in order to make them more accessible, to educate and inspire those around the world. Today, the organization is proud to announce that it has reached the important milestone of digitizing its 100,000th artifact, a photograph of the 100,000th Fordson Tractor.
The Henry Ford’s initial digitization efforts were funded through a generous gift from Lynn and Paul Alandt and Benson Ford, Jr., on behalf of the Benson and Edith Ford Fund. The institution’s first collections website only included 500 artifacts – the very first being a 1929 Ford Model A Coupe used by Henry Ford.
With more than 26 million artifacts in its collection, The Henry Ford still has many more milestones ahead.
