Presented is a graphic or thumb nail 'History at a Glance' sketch of Caterpillar Tractor Company and the first of a series. The purpose is to show background makeup of today's large tractor manufacturers using concise facts and applicable dates on the organization chart frame. It is easy to read, easy to follow and may be read in a forward or reverse order.
The Caterpillar Company has checked the facts and authorized printing for use by old engine clubs, nonprofit organizations and hobby magazines and I will forward a free copy to anyone who sends me an SASE. In preparation are similar 'History at a Glance' sketches that will show the background makeup of today's remaining tractor manufacturers through the acquisition of the older engine and tractor companies.
