Remembering the Monarch Tractor

monarch tractor ad 

In the February 2017 issue of Farm Collector, Dan Jacobs raised the questions of how long the Monarch name and its steering system may have been used. While not settling those issues, the enclosed ad from the Nov. 27, 1918, issue of Motor World shows an early Monarch. The Monarch Tractor Co. is listed as operating in Watertown, Wisconsin. The 1929 Farm Implement News Buyer Guide lists a Monarch Tractor Corp. in Springfield, Illinois. This indicates some kind of management change.
