Lloyd Viehland’s great uncle was John Dierking, a Missouri IH employee. In the early 1900s, IH sent John to Germany, South America, and many other places. He came home before WWI, but made many friends overseas. After the war, John continued to work for IH until the 1930s.

 

These letters, dated from 1903 to 1953, are from European nationals who worked with John prior to WWI. Many are from German IH employees who became friends with John, telling him their stories from WWI.
