Title
Warren G. Harding Meets the Firestone Family
Caption
President Warren G. Harding meeting the Firestone family during a camping trip in 1921. Harvey Firestone (1868-1938) was born in Columbiana County, Ohio and began to manufacture rubber tires in 1896. He founded the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in 1900 and moved it to Akron, Ohio. The camping trip was one of many that automobile manufacturer Henry Ford, Firestone, and inventor Thomas Edison took between 1916 and 1924. Harding was invited to their camping trip in Maryland in July of 1921, which became known as "Camp Harding" (AL03544).
