Charles Brady King


Like Ford, Charles Brady King first became interested in self-propelled vehicles upon seeing one at the 1893 Columbian Exposition, where he had gone to exhibit some of his own inventions. Preceding the 1896 debut of his first practical vehicle, King, in 1895, had organized American Motor League, a pioneer association to promote better roads. King also designed the 1902 “Silent Northern,” a vehicle which featured three-point suspension and an integral engine-transmission assembly. He organized the King Motor Car Company in 1910, and in 1916 turned his efforts to the design of aircraft engines.
