Default Need Help From I.H.C. Experts


In 1920, or shortly thereafter, an engineer jumped ship from Minneapolis Steel & Machinery Co. to join up with International Harvestor Corp. tractor engineering staff.
His name was,
Albert William Serrat,
Albert William Searrat,
Albert William Scarret ?

I am working on a future publication and would prefer to have the spelling correct. I have not found it on my own so far.

Anyone

Tony; From my Minneapolis-Moline 1910-1959 Data Book no.2 a reprint, on page 13 there is a reference to A W Scarratt Tractor Engineer, Mpls Steel & Mach Co.

Gary,
Thank you!
I pulled out my Minneapolis-Moline 1910-1959 data book
No. 2 a reprint, and there it is on page 13.
There is only one problem.....I did not make the other spellings up, I have actually seen this ex TC & I.H.C engineers name spelled three different ways in other text examples. Now we have four different spellings for
Albert William Serrat,
Albert William Searrat,
Albert William Scarret,
Albert William Scarratt

If another enthusiast can find reference to Albert S. I will run with a majority rule on the spelling here

Tony,

I think it could be Albert William Scarratt - I did a search of Google Books and there are several contemporary publications with this spelling:

All the best
