Henry J. Kaiser (May 9, 1882 – August 24, 1967) was a prominent American industrialist known as the father of modern shipbuilding. His concepts are still widely used today by almost all shipyards throughout the world. During World War II, Kaiser's yards constructed more than 1,500 cargo ships.[1]

Kaiser made significant contributions to the automobile industry with Kaiser-Frazer Corporation cars.[2] As an industrialist, Kaiser was the founder of the many affiliated Kaiser Companies.[3][4]

As a builder, he constructed roads, dams (Hoover Dam), tunnels, ships and a dozen industries in a half century. As the founder of a medical care program (Kaiser-Permanente Health), he worked with partnerships of physicians, built hospitals and clinics, established a nursing school and contributed to medical education. His ideas were the foundation of all modern-day Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO's).[5]
