In 1913, naturalist John Burroughs and industrialist Henry Ford visited Concord, Massachusetts where two of Burroughs' early literary influences -- Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau -- once resided. Ford, Burroughs and their traveling companions visited Emerson's home, Walden Pond and the gravesites of the two 19th-century Transcendentalists. Frank Sanborn, a Burroughs' acquaintance and friend of Emerson and Thoreau, served as guide for the distinguished visitors.
