Roy D. Chapin


This book tells the history of Chapin from his years at Oldsmobile, through Chalmers-Detroit, Chalmers & Hudson motorcars. Very interesting reading chronicling how Chapin found the backing from E.R. Thomas to build the Thomas-Detroit automobiles, negotiated Hugh Chalmers becoming president of the company to form the Chalmers-Detroit co., while managing to start the Hudson Motor Car Company in 1909, only one year after helping launch the Chalmers-Detroit company.
