Reader remembers International Red Baby

| May 2007

The article on page 22 of the April 2005 issue of Farm Collector titled "Oh Baby" caught my eye. We too had a "Red Baby" International truck. My father, the late L.E. Scott, started Scott Supply Co. in Mt. Vernon, S.D., selling International Harvester machinery. He purchased a new 1921 Red Baby truck and used it to canvass the country. The business continues to this date and is located in Mitchell, S.D., which is 12 miles east of Mt. Vernon in southeastern South Dakota. I am a retired 91-year-old and still go to the business a couple of times a day. My two sons, Bob and John, and grandson, Chris, run the business. I remember well riding in the truck; I wish I still had it today.
