Speaker Series: The Vanderbilt Cup

It was America’s first great auto race. From 1904 to 1910, the world’s best drivers gathered on Long Island to compete for the Vanderbilt Cup, named for sponsor/sportsman/socialite William K. Vanderbilt, Jr. French marques earned the first victories, but when a Locomobile took the prize in 1908, it signaled a coming of age for American cars. Join The Henry Ford Museum’s Curator of Transportation, Matt Anderson, as he explores this important race through vintage photographs and documents.
