Through grants awarded by the Canadian Council of Archives and National Archives of Canada Arrangement and Description Backlog Reduction Program, a collection of black and white, and color photographs and negatives taken by the International Harvester Company (IHC) has been catalogued by the Ontario Agricultural Museum. During 1986 and 1987, nearly 5000 images of IHC equipment and dealerships and a wide variety of rural life scenes has been made accessible to dealers, collectors and researchers through a computerized system which allows you to locate negative and pictures by subject, equipment type and make, model and year of the implement.
This accurate record of the equipment manufactured by International Harvester between the years 1942 and 1971 reveals much information that will be of tremendous value to anyone interested in the agricultural implement business, farming or rural life.
The Museum's Agricultural Implement Catalogue Collection, containing service manuals, parts lists and sales brochures compliments this extensive photographic collection. Along with these primary sources of information our staff provides their expertise to make the Ontario Agricultural Museum one of the best sources of information in Canada on International Harvester and IHC equipment.
