Presented by author and historian Barry Levine
DEARBORN – Dearborn Public Library will host local author and historian Barry Levine for an in-person presentation titled “Willow Run: 80+ Years and Going Strong” at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 27 in the auditorium of Henry Ford Centennial Library, 16301 Michigan Ave.
Levine will discuss the over 80-year history of the Willow Run complex: Ford’s B-24 bomber plant, Kaiser Frazer, General Motors auto and transmission manufacturing, passenger and air cargo aviation, military research, and more.
“While operations have changed over the years, the people at Willow Run have always persevered through whatever challenges came their way,” Levine said.
Barry Levine works at Henry Ford Museum and is a volunteer at the Yankee Air Museum. He is the author of the books “Yankee Air Museum” (2018) and “Michigan Aviation: People and Places That Changed History” (2021), and his articles have been published in various aviation and history magazines.
