Bruce: Pleasure to meet you at Hershey last October at the MTFCA Forum meeting.

Great informative video on your family involvement with Henry Ford and the Model T.

What was the outcome on the translation you requested ?

Bob J.

The filming was done in the fall of 2015. It was a lot of fun to help on it! Hungarian National TV used it for a year before Aron could post it for us to watch.

Bruce, you and all Americans, especially in the Model T hobby, should be proud of your grandfathers accomplishments and contribution to our way of life. The translations are spot on and a fantastic documentary. It was great to connect your face to our correspondence. Frank Seress

Bruce, the Hemmings Classic Car for November 2017 has a great article about Jozsef Galamb. Its in the Automotive Pioneers section and titled "Who Designed the Model T." Great read on his engineering work for Henry Ford.

Most of the articles written about the designers of the Model T use the Charlie Sorensen book “My Forty Years With Ford” as their reference source. This book tends to be a one sided story ignoring a group of individuals involved in the design of the Model T.
Writers tend to ignore the work of Owen Bombard done in the 1950’s. He interviewed the early employees of Ford, recording the conversations on a reel to reel tape recorder, then had a secretary type the conversations. When Owen could not interview the individual in person, they would communicate via mail. I will post on letter to my Grandfather as an example Please remember the copy is property of The Henry Ford.
One tape remains of Joe Galamb and we shared a copy with his youngest daughter a few years ago. It was the first time Gloria had heard her Fathers voice sense his death in 1955! She did not listen to the recording until Christmas Day so she could let her children, and grandchildren hear his voice for the first time! Unfortunately she has sense passed.
The collection of Mr. Bombard is at The Henry Ford. If you get a chance to visit them! As I recall Joe’s conversation was 400 pages.

Thank you Bruce. We all very much appreciate your family's connection to the history of our Model Ts and sharing this very special information with us.

Bruce, may I ask? Did your Grandfather respond and send his memoir back to Mr bombard?

Fantastic! One thing I take from this is that what we are doing in our hobby is not just having fun with old machinery, but helping to preserve the astonishing achievements of these great men. Our hobby is important IMHO. Thank you for posting this, Mr. Balough. Regards, Bill

First, Thank you Bill, and Duey, yes I do. The response was written on Dec 14, 1955. If you have a copy of the Model T Times, March-April 2016 you can read the contents of that letter. Just for fun I will share from page 9-10 of Gene Farkas’s reminiscence. Please remember the copies are property of The Henry Ford.
