McCormick, Cyrus Hall


McCormick, Cyrus Hall
(15 feb. 1809, cond. de Rockbridge, Va. EE.UU.–13 may. 1884, Chicago, Ill.).

Industrial e inventor estadounidense. Se le atribuye el desarrollo (desde 1831) de la segadora mecánica, la cual revolucionó la cosecha de granos. Hacia 1850 la segadora de McCormick era conocida a lo largo y ancho de EE.UU.; sus premios y honores, como la Gran medalla de honor en la Exposición de París de 1855, la hicieron famosa en todo el mundo. En 1902, McCormick Harvesting Co. y otras compañías se unieron para formar International Harvester Co., con Cyrus hijo como su primer presidente.
