I grew up in Dearborn. I enjoyed every minute and in particular SeashoreSwimming Pool and the swimming dock at Camp Dearborn. We used to take our bikes
and later hitch-hike out to CD. Probably not such a good idea today with the increase in the number of nuts per square mile. My first job out of high school
was at Ford Product Engineering where I was employed as a flunkie. Still, I loved working at the old Engineering Staff Building on Oakwood Blvd., and later at the Product Engineering offices on Rotunda Dr. I loved the Rotunda and I am urging Ford to cough up the money to re-build it. Fairlane, however thinks its an interesting idea if someone wants to fund it. Come on Ford. As for the name "Dearborn," please change our town to "Henry Ford, MI." Today I live in NJ and spent my career on Wall Street. I got a great education in Henry Ford, MI and the place was perfect. My most memorable teacher was Isobel Goebel an eccentric 8th grade teacher who knew more about Henry Ford, MI than anyone possible and may have had a hand in supporting the Dearborn Historical Society. I did not get along with her, but I learned more from her than any teacher I ever encountered. Which proves that 13 year olds don't know squat. Go Henry Ford, Michigan " the automotive tourist capitol of the world."
