Four million new Burroughs fans?
An article in the current issue of My Ford Magazine pays tribute to an unlikely friendship – that of naturalist John Burroughs and the man who spurred the advancement of industry, Henry Ford. Written by Seth Putnam, the piece has reached four million Ford owners and countless more in the online version, which includes a short video interviewing Woodchuck Lodge Board President Bill Birns and Burroughs’ great-granddaughter Joan Burroughs. Photographer and videographer Jonathan Kane, who visited the Lodge two summers ago, works for Time Inc. Content Solutions and initiated the story. Find it here.
