National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductee Harvey S. Firestone, founder for the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company, would have celebrated his 150th birthday this Dec. 20.
Firestone’s company served as a major industry leader, and his development of the pneumatic tire created a partnership with another industry leader, Henry Ford.
Henry Ford saw the impact pneumatic tires could have on automobiles at the time, and immediately began installing them on his cars built in the Ford Motor Co. plant.
On Dec. 20, celebrate Harvey Firestone’s 150th birthday and his improvements to the tires we use every day!
