The History of Stroud
J. W. Stroud, father of our President and founder of Stroud National Agency, Steve Stroud, purchased a brand new Minneapolis Moline combine in 1938. The combine replaced the threshing machine seen in the background. It took a crew of 14 men to do the work that could be done using the combine. J. W. decided the header should be extended by 3 feet and had that done before he had harvested the first bushel of grain. The company, Minneapolis Moline, heard of this addition to the header and came to the farm and took this picture. They printed the story, as related above, in their monthly, Minneapolis Moline magazine. Steve Stroud is the young boy on the left and his brother, J.R. is on the right.
