Ford legacy in Washtenaw County

A colleague and I are considering reporting on Henry Ford's legacy in Washtenaw County, detailing efforts the famous automaker made to convert existing buildings in these communities into alternatively-powered production facilities.
If there is anyone out there who can remember back to the 1930s or early 1940s when Ford was heavily involved in this area, or has family and friends who do, please get in contact with me.
Any type of photos or other artifacts concerning Ford in Washtenaw County would also be appreciated.
We plan to cover our bases by utilizing several of the local historical societies, but would like to add a more personal touch as well with firsthand accounts and memories.
