What research is Dr. Ebert doing now?

Stearns-Knight and The F.B. Stearns Company

Bob Ebertís current research focuses on the luxury automobile market of the 1920s. A Cleveland, Ohio firm, The F.B. Stearns Company, produced the Stearns-Knight auto in the high priced, luxury price class. The company was dissolved in 1929 after 33 years in business. Research indicates that changing market conditions and production processes were underway in the luxury car market in the 1920s. The F.B. Stearns Company did not adapt to these changes and ultimately failed.
