Sally Jacobs is the archivist for the McCormick/International Harvester papers in the Wisconsin Historical Society's Library, Archives and Museum Collections division. She gives presentations about the collection.
International Harvester was a U.S. manufacturer of agricultural machinery, construction equipment, trucks and household and commercial products. Roots of International Harvester run to 1830 when Cyrus Hall McCormick finalized his version of a horse drawn reaper. In 1902 McCormick Harvesting Machinery Company and Deering Harvester Company along with three other smaller agricultural equipment firms merged to create International Harvester. Banker J. P Morgan provided the financing. Ms. Jacobs, being the archivist for the McCormick/ International Harvester papers, will be able to provide a detailed accounting of this merger and subsequent activities in the manufacture of farm equipment by International Harvester. Snacks to follow.
