MASSEY, Hart Almerrin, Canadian manufacturer, born in Haldimand, Ontario, 29 April, 1823. His grandfather, a native of Vermont, settled in Canada in 1807. The grandson was educated in Watertown, New York, and a, t Victoria college, Cobourg, and became interested in the management of his father's farms. In 1852 he became partner and business manager of his father's foundry and ma-chine-shop at Newcastle, and in 1855 sole proprietor, his father having retired from the business. From this time until 1864, when the Newcastle establishment was burned, Mr. Massey's reapers and mowers and other agricultural implements came into general use throughout Canada. New and larger buildings soon replaced those which had been destroyed. In 1870 the Massey manufacturing company was organized, of which he has since been president. In 1879 the company's establishment was removed to Toronto. The company is now (1888) the largest manufacturer of agricultural implements in the Dominion, and has invented and introduced new features and improvements in connection with many farm implements. Mr. Massey was the first manufacturer in Canada to make a mowing-machine and self-raking reaper.
