He was one of the first British industrialists to introduce mass production methods. His company, Morris Motors Ltd, prospered in the years after the First World War. From the first Morris Oxford of 1913 to the post-war Morris Minor, his Morris and MG cars were known around the world. Lord Nuffield was made a baron in 1934, and a viscount in 1938, and took the name of Nuffield, the Oxfordshire village where he had settled. He died in 1963. Despite his great wealth, Lord Nuffield remained personally frugal and in later life devoted his energies to the philanthropy that made him a household name. The Nuffield Foundation, his largest benefaction, was founded in 1943 with a gift of £10m-worth of shares in his company. Ref FF5 Size: 160pp. N° de ref. de la librería 010687
