Synopsis: Henry E. Beck was a mechanical engineer who held numerous patents that included farm machinery and earth-moving equipment used in coal mining and quarry excavations. He was an engineer from 1944 to 1958 for J.I. Case Co., a tractor manufacturer in Racine, Wis and a senior design engineer with Caterpillar Tractor Co. , where he also developed many patents. Born and raised in Durand, Wisconsin, Mr. Beck was the son of a minister and attended the Armour Institute in Chicago, now the Illinois Institute of Technology.

Ever wonder about the farm industry and how those giant machines get there? Those familiar industry names appear on country landscapes, brightly glowing their manufacturer's name. These machines all began in the minds of engi¬neers and their fabricators. Henry E. Beck was one of those creative geniuses who provided concept and execution of these well-needed devices.

Growin' Up with Men and Machines paints a history of American culture spanning a few centuries, including current time. Filled with historical facts and wisdom, Mr. Beck offers an overview of life in our country beginning with the Indians, to early emigrants, all the way through his own family life and difficulties. He even writes about his experiences with organized religion and his family's interest in church ministry. He also offers chapters on his work with well-known farm tractor companies, such as Caterpillar, and about his final years in the workforce up to his retirement.

Read and learn about American history through the eyes of a seasoned man with interesting life experiences firmly under his belt. Travel through time and learn what goes into the making of giant earth-moving machines and the lives of those involved in making it happen. Explore what it means to work hard while learning how to be the best one can be in American society and its ever-competitive workforce.
