United States must read the hfe of Cyrus Hall Mc Cormick. No other one man so truly represented the dawn of the industrial era, the grapple of the pioneer with the crudities of a new country, the replacing of muscle with machinery, and the establishment of better ways and better times in farm and city alike. Beginning exactly one hundred years ago, the life of Mc Cormick spanned the heroic period of our industrial advancement, when great things were done by great individuals. To know Mc Cormick is to know what type of man it was who created the United States of the nineteenth century. And now that a new century has arrived, with a new type of business development, it may be especially instructive to review a life that was so structural and so fundamental.
