Manuals created by manufacturers to assist in the operation, maintenance, repair, or
restoration of agricultural machinery.
The Agricultural Technology Manuals Collection began as a series in the F. Hal Higgins Collection. In 1927
F. Hal Higgins began collecting materials relating to the history of combines and tractors. Over time the
collection expanded to include materials describing farm implements, farm commodities, and equipment for
logging, earthmoving and construction.
