Henry Ford (1863–1947), U.S. industrialist. Interview in Chicago Tribune (May 25, 1916).
Ford later sued the paper for libel after an editorial had described him as an "anarchist" and "ignorant idealist"; in the course of the action the motor magnate was cross-examined for eight days during which he was forced to defend his views on history. The Tribune was found guilty and fined 6 cents. See Ford on idealism.
