Birth of Daniel Massey - Feb 24, 1798
Manufacturer Daniel Massey was born at Windsor, VT. In 1847 Massey opened a workshop that built such farm implements as mechanical threshers in Newcastle, Ont. Massey Manufacturing Co. was taken over by Massey’s son, Hart (noted businessman and benefactor), who turned it into a multinational enterprise that produced, among other things, the world’s first self-propelled combine harvester in 1938. Of course, Hart Massey gave us Massey Hall, Hart House and Massey College — so we thank Daniel for his genetic contribution.
