Henry Ford Great-Great Grandson Joins Co.

By DEE-ANN DURBIN, AP Auto Writer

Henry Ford III, the great-great grandson of Ford Motor Co. founder Henry Ford, is joining the family business, his father Edsel Ford II said Sunday.

Henry Ford III, 26, will work in labor relations, his father said. He has a degree in history from Dartmouth College and most recently worked as a middle school teacher in Alexandria, Va. Henry is the eldest of Edsel Ford's four sons.

Henry Ford III is the second member of the Ford family's fifth generation to take a job at Ford. His cousin, Elena Ford, is director of North American product marketing.

"I think it's terrific that the fifth generation is taking as much interest as they are," Edsel Ford told reporters after a dealer meeting at the National Automobile Dealers Association conference.

Edsel Ford said his son met with another cousin, Ford Chairman and CEO Bill Ford, and other executives before deciding which area of the company he wanted to join.

Edsel Ford said his son will have to prove himself at the company.

"There are no crown princes at Ford," Edsel Ford said.
