1In July 1938, before the outbreak of World War II, the German consul in Cleveland gave Ford, on his 75th birthday, the award of the "Grand Cross of the German Eagle", the highest medal that Nazi Germany could bestow on a foreigner who sympathized with the Nazi cause.
2In 1922 "The New York Times" reported that Adolf Hitler's office contained a large picture of Ford. A well-thumbed copy of "The International Jew" was found in his library. It was a four-volume set of booklets and pamphlets published and distributed in the early 1920s by Ford. The rabidly anti-Ssemitc texts first appeared in Ford's own newspaper, "The Dearborn Independent". The paper reached a circulation of 900,000 by 1925, second only to the "New York Daily News", largely due to a quota system for promotion imposed on Ford dealers. Lawsuits regarding anti-Semitic material published in the paper caused Ford to close it, and the last issue was published in December 1927.
