Financial records of the International Harvester Company, formed in August 1902, by a consolidation of the McCormick Harvesting Machine Company, the Deering Harvester Company, and the Plano Manufacturing Company, all in the Chicago area; the Milwaukee Harvester Company in Wisconsin; and the Warder, Bushnell, and Glessner Company (Champion) at Springfield, Ohio. International Harvester thus came into control of the country's harvesting equipment, with about 90 per cent of its grain-binder production and 80 percent of its mowers, the two chief harvesting machines. The financial records are chiefly those of the predecessor Deering, Milwaukee, and Plano companies before they consolidated in 1902; primarily time and payroll records.
