PACKARD AUTOMOBILE ORIGINATOR SUCCUMBS

The Pittsburgh Press
12 November 1923


Warren, O., Nov. 12.—William D. Packard, aged 62, the originator, with his brother, J. W. Packard, of the Packard automobile, died in his home here yesterday. He had been an invalid for many years, being blind for the last 10 years. A cold contracted a few days ago hastened his death.

The two brothers organized the Packard Electric Co. in 1900, the first Packard automobile making its appearance soon afterward. The brothers retired eight years later when the company, renamed the Packard Motor Co., was taken over by Detroit interests.

Funeral services will be held here tomorrow afternoon.
