Firestone tires made history at the Indianapolis 500 in the early 1900s and earned national recognition.
Early Life and Education
Harvey Firestone was born and graduated from Columbiana High School. While working for his uncle’s buggy company during the 1890s, Harvey soon realized his future lay in car tires – so in 1900, he founded his own rubber tire manufacturer which proved immensely successful.
Not only did he produce exceptional tires, he also pioneered shipping by encouraging businesses to use trucks instead of rails as the primary method for moving cargo – this eventually led to the formation of the trucking industry.
He was an active philanthropist, giving to various causes. One of his notable donations was land and partial funding to establish Columbiana Park; which still hosts an annual festival today.
Thomas serves as co-chair of the White Collar & Internal Investigations practice group and as a partner in National Security/CFIUS/Compliance group at our Firm. His practice emphasizes complex transnational investigations and international risk management issues related to foreign corruption practices, compliance and transactional due diligence issues.
Thomas won three events this year and nine on the PGA Tour, but this win at Bridgestone Invitational stands out as his finest achievement so far. On Sunday he never appeared threatened as he recorded a 1-under 69 to outgun Rory McIlroy by two strokes for victory and collect $1.7 Million as reward.

Achievement and Honors
Henry Ford, Thomas Edison (inventor of the electric lamp), and Harvey Firestone (founder of Firestone Tire and Rubber Company), all luminaries of industry and innovation, discuss how technology is shaping society today.
Firestone quickly expanded after WWII with chemicals, industrial products, and other allied goods. One Firestone plant in Fall River, Massachusetts produced gas masks while its Akron, Ohio site became one of the main producers of 57mm recoilless rifles for ground forces.
In 1990, rebel NPFL forces led by Charles Taylor attacked and temporarily closed down a company’s facility in Harbel. Resumption of operations took six months after signing an MoU with the government that provided tax collection and employee protection services.
Home, Firestone enjoyed spending time with his family and was known for treating his employees fairly, offering company stock to employees and even traveling on camping trips with them.
He made improvements to Monrovia Harbor, loaned money to the government, and created a work and living site for native workers – but was also widely criticized for paying low wages and exerting too much influence over Liberia’s government.
Jon’s article generated considerable discussion, and many individuals began approaching him privately with their concerns over Princeton’s connection to Firestone. They wanted him to do something, such as suggest that the library release their records or put an exhibit together for historical context; they asked him if this solution would help, too. Jon suggested this solution and wanted you to determine its viability before suggesting this plan as a solution for all parties involved.
Thomas currently works at Firestone Complete Auto Care as a Vice-President-Level. This company is one of the largest Automotive Service & Collision Repair firms in America; his career began 9 years ago.
Firestone began making synthetic tires to meet demand during World War One when natural rubber from Asia and Africa became scarce; his company became a significant supplier of military equipment as well.
