Whatever Happened to McCormick-Deering? By Sam Moore

As most of you know, McCormick-Deering was never a "company" itself, but the trademark name of a line of tractors and farm machinery manufactured by the International Harvester Company.

 

The name was used on farm implements until sometime in 1948 or 1949, when Deering was dropped, and McCormick alone was used.  During the 1960s, the proud McCormick and Farmall names were replaced by International, the name Harvester's farm machinery carried until the sale of the farm equipment division to Tenneco Inc. in 1984.

Ever since his years as a boy on a farm in western Pennsylvania, Sam Moore has been interested in tractors, trucks and machinery.  He's been a collector of antique tractors, implements and related items for several years.
