International Harvester Collectors is a non-profit association
of enthusiasts, interested in International Harvester equipment of
all types. It was organized by July 20, 1990, at Winamac, Indiana.
At that time, over two hundred people met to elect nine directors
and establish the purpose of the club, and become members. By the
end of 1990 there were about 800 charter members. In the past two
years the club has grown to almost 1700 members, from all over the
U.S. and several foreign countries. To accommodate this number of
members, and to provide for more localized involvement for them,
the club is sanctioning chapters in any area where the number of
members permit. During the past year, chapters have been formed in
Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin and Kansas. Iowa is now organizing a
chapter.

Each year a national convention, known as the Red Power
Round-Up, is hosted by a different antique power show. Hundreds of
collectors come to show off their favorite I. H. items to the
thousands of guests attending these annual meets. Conventions have
been held at Edgerton, Wisconsin on Labor Day weekend 1991, and
Marion, Ohio in June 1992. Future plans for the Red Power Round-Up
are Boonville, Missouri, September 1993, and Hooks-town,
Pennsylvania, September 1994. The states of Iowa, Minnesota,
Nebraska, and the Dakotas are eligible to host in 1995. The club is
planning a winter convention in northern Illinois in late
February/early March 1993. Annual appearances at the Farm Progress
Show and the National Farm Machinery Show are also major club
events.

Membership includes two three-inch logo decals, membership card,
and club newsletter. Annual dues are $10.00. For membership

Indiana 46996.
