Where the name Edsel came from.

January 09, 2011 by Chad Houghton

Henry Ford had a child friend Edsel Ruddiman who he met at the Scotch Settlement School, they played almost everyday and even carved their initials next to each other in the desk they shared.  They where inseperable to say the least.  Edsel became a chemist and pharmacist at Ford Motor Company.  When Henry's only child was born in 1893 he named him Edsel.
