dodge brothers...

The Dodge Brothers, Horace & John, started providing parts to the automobile industry, specifically Olds & Ford in 1900…after 15 years, they finally figured out how to put those parts together and formed the Dodge Brothers in 1915…John was quoted as saying, “I’m tired of being carried around in Henry Ford’s vest pocket”…In 1920 pneumonia claimed brother John which proved to be too great of a loss for Horace who himself succumbed to cirrhosis in the same year…Dodge was bought out by Chrysler in 1928 and as they say, the rest is history…
