Ford-Van Auken
 
Edsel Ford was born in 1893, the son of automobile pioneer Henry Ford. Edsel worked part time in the Ford factory where, in 1909, he met a Ford employee, Charles Van Auken, who had bought construction drawings for a Bleriot XI monoplane. Knowing that Edsel was deeply interested in aviation, his father asked several Ford employees to help Van Auken build the airplane.
