Biographical history

The J.I. Case Threshing Company's branch office in Calgary, Alberta was established as early as 1906 at 1011-1st Street SW with E.M. McCammon as general agent. The head office of the company was in Racine, Wisconsin, USA. By 1911 the Calgary branch had moved to 351-10th Avenue SW where it remained until about 1970 at which time it was called the J.I. Case Company. One of the company's concerns during the depression years was that many farmers who had bought machinery on credit with Case were unable to make payments and had to return the equipment.
