Physical Description
1 photograph : b&w ; 18 x 24 cm
Scope and Content
Black and white photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published June 5, 1968 (p. 46-F) with caption: "The St. Thomas Assembly Plant of the Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited, has its own newspaper. Called the Ford Tower, the newspaper is published monthly and made its debut in August of last year. A four-page publication, the Ford Tower is inserted in Ford News, Ford's Canada-wide newspaper that is published by the central office at Oakville. Ford tower has its own specially designed masthead. In the top left corner is the bright red maple leaf 'Zero Defects' emblem that has become the symbol of craftsmanship at the St. Thomas plant. In the left hand corner of the masthead is an artist's drawing of the feature that is unique to the St. Thomas plant- the tall selectivity tower- a familiar landmark in the area. Ford tower is produced by the personnel services section of the industrial relations department. Packed with news about people, activities and plans at the St. Thoms plant, Ford Tower performs two other important functions in addition to that normally associated with a newspaper. Ford tower is a training aid. Ford Tower is an important tool in employee orientation. The first edition of Ford Tower carried this challenging headline on Page 1: 'Can Be Best In North America, Runyon Says In Plant Message'. The accompanying article was one of welcome from Plant Manager Marvin T. Runyon to all employees. If anyone wants to find out 'Who's Who' at the St. Thomas Assembly Plant then Ford Tower is a good place to look for such information. Not only will articles about management and department heads be found in its columns, but there are also informative descriptions of the functions of the many departments in the plant. These articles have contributed considerably to the success of the general orientation program at the St. Thomas plant. Ford Tower also carries many articles designed to further the continuing training program at the plant. Many of them stress the Zero Defects concept of 'Do It Right the First Time, Right from the Start'. How employees can prevent in-plant damage to component and partially finished units is one of the subjects given extensive coverage. Articles on plant safety, good work habits, protective clothing, etc., have also been featured. Almost every activity will sooner or later find its way into the pages of Ford Tower for the information and guidance of employees."

Black and white photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published June 5, 1968 (p. 32-F)with caption: "Mr. St. Thomas Ford Plant- Although this cute little fellow held by charming secretary Mrs. Judy Albert has not been given a name, he is a symbol of the high standard of craftsmanship of workers at the St. Thomas Assembly Plant. His head is a piston, representing the precise engineering required in building automobiles. His arms are micrometer callipers, an instrument used in making very accurate measurements. His feet are Johannsen gauge blocks, another instrument of accuracy. The mannequin's body is the maple leaf emblem of the St. Thomas plant, emblazoned with the letters ZD to denote the Zero Defects concept of 'Do It Right The First Time, Right From The Start' that is so much a part of the philosophy of the plant's 1,450-strong work force."

Only seven of the storeys will be encased in glass, the top three will be covered with a blue siding and will also house the elevator machinery." (C8 Sh4 B2 F1 20b)
