The newly-formed J. I. Case Collectors held their first summer show July 11 to 14, in Greenville, Ohio. The show was planned as part of the Darke County Steam Threshers Association show, where Case equipment was to be featured.
The show drew large numbers of enthusiastic people to see tractors, plows, a threshing machine, and several Case cars. Seven steam engines (from 9 to 110 HP), including a steam roller, performed for the crowds.
Mrs. Helen Case Brigham attended and gave words of encouragement to Case collectors.
The organization is now well under way, with a newsletter editor and plans for another show next summer. Watch for announcements of the dates and place.
