Mr. West and the Suitland Tractor Company provided a Rototiller for the American Legion, Boys Nation program to present to President Eisenhower in July 1955. I have been trying in vain to learn more about James A West and the Suitland Tractor Company. I have learned that it was in existence from around 1950 to 1975 and I have a booklet with a sketch of the building. I would like to know more about the business and Mr. West.
I recently wrote an article about the photo of the presentation of this tiller for Lawn and Garden Tractor magazine.
