About the Author

J. C. Long published fourteen books between 1923 and 1968, nine of them biographies. Also during his lifetime, Long managed the education department of the National Automobile Chamber of Commerce, served on the editorial staff of the New Yorker, and was the manager of publications for Bethlehem Steel Company.


A biography of Roy D. Chapin, one of the most significant figures in the first third-century of the American automobile, is long overdue. I salute the decision to publish Roy D. Chapin: The Man behind the Hudson Motor Car Company."--Z Taylor Vinson "editor of the Automotive History Review, a publication of the Society of Automotive Historians "
Hudson Motor Company's talented and charismatic founder Roy D. Chapin died before his historical significance was recognized, relegating him to undeserved obscurity. Fortunately J. C. Long, who knew Chapin well, wrote a privately printed biography in 1945. The reissue of this long unavailable book is good news for automotive historians."--Barry Dressel "manager of DaimlerChrysler's Walter P. Chrysler Museum "
One of America's greatest auto pioneers is honored in this polished and ever so readable biography. This book is essential to automotive historians and Hudson lovers as food and shelter!"--Old Autos
Rated three (out of four stars): Worth reading. We believe Hudson fans will eagerly assign a fourth star [for an] Absolute Must rating."--Hemmings Classic Cars
Since 1945 J. C. Long's biography of Roy Chapin has been an undiscovered gem, known primarily to the few hundred people to whom Chapin's widow Inez distributed the original printing. Now this superb recounting of the story of a key auto pioneer is available to a wide audience. Anyone interested in the history of the twentieth century's most influential industry will be grateful."--Robert Casey "John and Horace Dodge Curator of Transportation at The Henry Ford "
This is an excellent book for amateurs, enthusiasts, or introductory students beginning their study of historical archaeology. This is the first introductory text that fully encapsulates the excitement and enthusiasm many feel in asking questions of the unknown, shedding light on the forgotten, and sharing histories with others to ignite the intrigue felt about the past."--Journal of the Society for Industrial Archeology
