Today’s question to ponder

What was the incentive for Ford Motor Company to donate $20,000 to the Department of Corrections in 1974? Ideas? Please share them in the comments.

Mayor’s Order 74-165 (Interestingly printed on old paper; it says “Commissioner’s Order.”)

    Only thing I can think of is that the DC Dept of Corrections was expanding its prison in Lorton, Virginia, in 1974. So imagine the donation was for the expansion. But why Ford would want to do so, I’m still not sure.
