Part of Joseph M. Tucker Massey Harvest Brigade Collection

This pamphlet explains America's dwindling food stock in 1943 and how "Massey-Harris foresaw the critical situation of the 1944 harvest - a record crop production with too few men and combines to handle the vast acreages." Recognizing the seriousness of the situation the government approved the plan for a Harvest Brigade (a fleet of 500 Self-Propelled Combines) that "pledged to harvest more acres with less fuel, manpower and equipment than ever before in the history of the world."
