Last month we wrote of the new inductees to the EDGE&TA Hall of Fame. This month, we share some details on the two men newly brought in:

Harry Lee was born on a farm near Elnora, Indiana, in 1921. Like many children of his time, he helped out with farm chores and that laid the groundwork for his mechanical aptitude.

Harry gave new meaning to the term 'shade tree mechanic.' When Harry was 16 years old his father gave him an old four wheel cart to work, to which he added a one lung hit and miss gas engine. The cart went through many improvements, including automobile type steering and model 'T' wheels. That cart ended up lasting for many years.

Harry's collection has some of the most rare stock Farmall tractors around. He began to think just what else could be done to represent the development of his favorite line, Farmall. Harry has built tractors that have one, two and three engines, which shows the creative mind that this gentleman has. He has been active in promoting our hobby all around the mid-east and as far south as Texas by using a 40-foot trailer loaded with tractors to get to these shows.

Harry has written many articles for national magazines about some of his creations, life on the farm, and farm shows. Harry Lee has also taken an active role in promoting the International Harvester Collectors' Club.
