DNC,

There are several chapters on Henry Leland in "Cadillac, The Standard of the World, The Complete History" By Maurice D. Hendry with the editors of Automobile Quarterly. It is very extensive over one hundred pages, starting from his father, Leander B. Leland, Henry's birth, early years, to working for Colt, to his superb engineering for Cadillac, his Presidency of Cadillac and General Manager from 1904 to 1917. It talks a little about the Lincoln Automobile Co. he founded in 1917, but nothing on the sale to Henry Ford or his later years.
