What's the history & dates behind the Edison DD records that state "for Henry Ford" on the labels? Curious (I know they were best of friends)

At one time, these were available from Tom Hawthorn for $10 each. There were two different discs available and they were brand new old stock, unplayed, having been decommissioned from the Henry Ford museum. I bought three of each and still have them. Content is pretty boring, I played each side of one once. Someone's just playing to cash in on anyone that doesn't know how many of these are still around. Too bad.
