In 1900, much of Michigan’s wealth had been produced in three resource-based industries— copper, iron, and lumber. Copper was discovered in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula in 1847, and until the late 1880s the state was the world’s leading producer. Detroit became the largest producer of iron ships and a national center for other iron products. Michigan’s extensive hardwood forests provided lumber for carriage makers. Auto industry pioneers found that people who had made their fortunes in these and related industries in the 20th century were looking for new investment opportunities in the new century.
The timber was cut and floated down the Flint River to Crapo’s Flint saw mills. Crapo was elected mayor of Flint in 1860 and governor of Michigan in 1864. Durant built his carriage company into the nation’s largest through vertical integration. At a time when carriages sold by competing companies were made under contract with independent manufacturers, Durant-Dort established subsidiaries to manufacture carriage bodies, wheels, axles, upholstery, springs, varnish, and whip sockets. 30 A PROFILE OF THE AUTOMOBILE AND MOTOR VEHICLE INDUSTRY Southeastern Michigan also became the center of auto production because of the availability of venture capital, much like Silicon Valley a century later.
The leading producer of marine engines, Detroitbased Leland & Faulconer, founded in 1890, became a major supplier of car engines and gained a reputation for making precision castings. Its co-founder Henry M. Leland (1843–1932) went on to be president of the Cadillac and the Lincoln car companies. In addition to Leland & Faulconer, the other leading Detroit-area parts supplier to early carmakers was Dodge Brothers. Dodge made most of the parts for Ford’s first cars in 1903, including engines, transmissions, axles, and frames.
