Leonard Firestone inherited the reins of the nation's leading tire manufacturer in the 1930s after the death of his father, Harvey Firestone.

Leonard would go on to lead the company until the 1970s, keeping the national brand on top of the market through some extremely challenging and ever-changing times. He died in 1996. His grandson, Andrew Firestone, is an executive with the company, as well as a known reality television star. City Permit #4040
