About the author (1975)

Born and educated in Michigan, the late Dr. George S. May devoted most of his career to teaching, studying, and writing about the state's history. His two-volume Pictorial History of Michigan, published in the late 1960s, has virtually become a classic of its genre and subject matter. Given the state's industrial distinction and his own expertise, Dr. May also wrote A Most Unique Machine: The Michigan Origins of the American Automobile Industry, and R.E. Olds: Auto Industry Pioneer. In 1986 Dr. May became a professor emeritus of history at Eastern Michigan University after teaching for twenty years at that institution. In 1986-1987 he served as visiting curator at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, assisting with its exhibition, "The Automobile in American Life.
