I started writing a history on the International Harvester Company and their tractors and machinery. I'm looking for any information that will assist in this endeavor.

The McCormick Deering 22-36 tractor has really stumped me. I started about a year and a half ago. Enclosed find a listing of research, one on tractors and one on the 22-36. Any help will be appreciated.

Pictured is a 6 HP Witte buzz saw outfit. The outfit was bought new during the depression by five farm families near Sullivan, Illinois. By going together the farmers were able to provide themselves with inexpensive fuel for their homes. It is going to be used to cut firewood. It runs smoothly.

This is a close-up of a 6 HP Witte. It uses a Kingston carburetor.
