Scott Underwood column: Auto industry book coming in November

(Continued)

Through the process of gathering materials and working with writers and photographers, I’ve learned a great deal about the local plants, their culture and their profound impact on the community.

Folks at the Madison County Historical Society, Anderson Public Library and other organizations have been wonderful in helping us find materials and information for the book. Without them, the task would have been much more difficult, seemingly impossible.

It’s exciting to see the pages of the book coming together now. It’s going to be a very good product, one that will stir fond memories for thousands of folks living in Madison County.

Many people, even if they worked in the local plants, will learn something from the book, perhaps about the very early period of the auto industry, when Anderson was a breeding ground for new ideas and new models of horseless carriages.
