Fun to have this brought to my attention. He was quite a man. Huge successful construction company; The Kaiser (and The Henry J); probably built more WWII ships than anybody (certainly on The West Coast!); Kaiser Foundation and Kaiser Permanente.

Interesting to read he owned a '56 MK II for the last year of his life. Cool. Thanks.

(My career was with The Guy F. Atkinson Company -- also construction and shipbuilding. I knew our company founders well, so my "degrees of separation" from Henry J is exactly one.)
