Growing up, Ford and his brother were self-described liberals “of every stripe”.
Ford was also a Boy Scout, achieving the second-highest rank of ‘Life Scout’, a position which would later inspire Steven Spielberg’s portrayal of a young Indiana Jones in the 1989 film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
