Catalogue Note

In 1837, John Deere established what would become one of America’s largest manufacturers of agricultural, construction and forestry equipment, his eponymous company and its leaping deer logo taking on a level of recognition that, to this day, reaches far beyond the bread basket to suburbanites who proudly maintain their piece of the American dream every weekend. Deere’s grandson, Willard Lamb Velie, upon graduating from Yale in 1888, journeyed to Montana where he met and married Annie Floweree.  In 1908, Willard formed the Velie Car Company in Moline, Illinois, the town that also became the site of his 46-room mansion where he raised his family, including daughter Marjorie Velie.
