Jeff Guinn, Author of The Vagabonds
December 10, 10 a.m., South Florida Water Management Lecture Hall, 2301 McGregor Blvd
We are very excited to feature Jeff Guinn, author of The Vagabonds; The Story of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison’s Ten-Year Road Trip.
In 1914, Henry Ford and naturalist John Burroughs visited Thomas Edison in Florida and toured the Everglades. The following year Ford, Edison, and Harvey Firestone began a tradition of camping trips and decided to call themselves the Vagabonds. They would continue their summer road trips until 1925, when they announced that their fame made it too difficult for them to carry on.
The book will be available for purchase at a special volunteer rate and to be signed by the author after the meeting.
Volunteer meetings are free and open to the public. Contact Bobby Feldman or Holly Shaffer, Program Managers at
239-335-3694 for information. Click here to learn more about volunteer opportunities at Edison Ford.
