About this collection

Selections from the letterbook of the inventor and manufacturer Eli Emery Hendrick.  The digital collection includes letters related to Hendrick's interest in automobiles. The letters reveal the enthusiasms and frustrations of an early motorist, who, although wealthy and mechanically gifted, was not a millionaire sportsman or race driver.
