International Harvester Company of America

Chicago, Illinois, USA, 1902–1986 (Distributor)

The International Harvester Company of America (abbreviated first IHC and later IH) was a U.S. manufacturer of agricultural machinery, construction equipment, trucks, and household and commercial products. In 1902, J.P. Morgan merged the McCormick Harvesting Machine Company and Deering Harvester Company, along with three smaller agricultural equipment firms, to form International Harvester. In 1985, International Harvester sold off most of its agricultural division to Tenneco, Inc., and in 1986 renamed itself Navistar International Corporation. In the early twentieth century, the company distributed postcards with scenes of harvesting and photographs of farm machinery and vehicles.
