We "baby boomers" who grew up in the 60s & 70s were taught at an early age to revere auto manufacturing pioneer Henry Ford (1863-1947) and his close friend, the prolific inventor Thomas Edison (1847-1931) as great American originals whose work improved living conditions for all of us. Over the course of just the past 25 years or so, however, the names of both of these legends have been badly tarnished --- Ford for being a "virulent anti-Semite," and Edison for just being an all around bad guy who "stole" his inventions from others (he didn't), electrocuted an elephant as a publicity stunt (he didn't) and mistreated Nikola Tesla (he didn't).
It's a darn shame. To what little extent young people are even taught about Ford & Edison anymore, their enormous contributions to the betterment of life are now being downplayed while their "vices" are emphasized. It took "the usual suspects" a long time to stain their great names -- but sooner or later, these vindictive demons always get their man in the end, even if he's been long dead.
