International Harvester Mine Rescue Team Trophy Collection

The International Harvester Mine Rescue Team Trophy Collection documents over 70 years of mine rescue competitions. The IH Mine Rescue Team was a great source of pride for the Benham community. Many Benham residents grew up watching the mine rescue team practice on the football field. When the IH team attended competitions they represented not only the company but also the town itself. The trophy collection documents the team's success in competitions and the company's dedication to mine safety.

In this podcast, Jeremy Williams discusses the history of mine rescue work, the significance of the IH Mine Rescue Team trophies, and several notable trophies in the collection. To listen to the podcast click on the photograph to the left.
