Henry Martyn Leland (1843-1932) is one of the most outstanding
figures in automotive history. Best known for developing the
Cadillac and the Lincoln, Leland was among the pioneers who set
Detroit on its course as the automobile capital of the world.
Master of Precision is the fascinating first hand account of
Leland's life and work during the early days of the automobile
industry. Trained in New England factories known for their
precision manufacturing, Henry Leland was an expert machinist
before he began to reshape automobile production. Affectionately
called "Uncle Henry" and the "Grand Old Man of Detroit," he was a
demanding but highly-respected employer who set new standards of
precision, quality, and performance. First published in 1966 by
Wayne State University Press, Master of Precision was re-released
in 1996 in celebration of the centennial of automobile
manufacturing in North America.
