Osborne Joins the Family

. M. Osborne & Co. of Auburn, N.Y. was a prominent manufacturer of twine binders and a major competitor of the McCormick Harvesting Machine Co. Although it was not part of the 1902 merger that created International Harvester Co., International purchased Osborne the following year. The company continued to market the Osborne line until 1918, when it agreed to sell the Osborne and several other lines to settle an anti-trust lawsuit.
