Singing Wheels; Author: Ruth Ann Fruehauf Darlene


The Fruehauf Trailer Historical Society celebrates August Fruehauf's creation of the first Semi-Trailer in 1914. August went from being a hard working german immigrant in Detroit to the President of a million dollar national company at his death in 1939. To commemorate the centennial in 2014, we present a biographical essay on August Fruehauf and the history of the company he created. It includes 39 pages of history and 90 pages of photographs from our archives.
