The combined McCormick-International Harvester materials comprise the largest single collection held by the Wisconsin Historical Society Archives. This massive collection includes hundreds of thousands of images dating from the 1840s through the 1980s, created by and for the McCormick and International Harvester companies, and Cyrus McCormick and his family. These images document the history of the agricultural equipment industry as well as rural life, small towns, architecture, industrial labor, technology, transportation and advertising.
