Henry Ford Community College in Dearborn, Michigan invites applicants to a National Endowment for the Humanities-sponsored Landmarks of American History Workshop for School Teachers in the summer of 2005. The five-day workshop is entitled, “The Rouge Plant, Henry Ford, and Manufacturing History, 1917-2004.”
