Your teacher is probably looking for you to answer Henry Kaiser. Henry Ford was also deeply involved but did not build as many ships as Kaiser. William S. Knudsen was one of them. His genius: he was an expert on mass production. If one plane was shot down, for example, Knudsen made sure there was ten to replace it. One tank lost, twenty were being shipped. One ship, fifty. He didn't need to worry about a fighting force, we had some sixteen million serving to defeat Nazi Germany. It was Knudsen's genius to realize what they needed!
