Born on this day, Joseph A

Thursday 3rd February 1881

Born on this day, Joseph A. Galamb, Hungarian Ford Motor Company engineer and a member of the team of engineers that developed the Model T. The Model T design would change automotive history with its reliability, affordability, and capacity for mass production. “If you freeze the design and concentrate on production,” Ford explained, “as the volume goes up, the cars are certain to become cheaper.” Thanks to men like Joseph Galamb, the design for the “Tin Lizzy” met her maker’s expectation to bring automobiles to the masses and guaranteed that the New World would become even newer for the next wave of immigrants. On February 3, 1981, the citizens of Mako, Hungary, paid tribute to Galamb, honoring the 100th anniversary of his birth.
