Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961) was an American author and journalist. His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations. Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid-1920s and the mid-1950s, winning the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954.
Cyrus McCormick was the inventor of the reaper, patented in 1834. His inventor was a horse drawn scythe used to cut more than 4 times the wheat a man could do with a cradle scythe. The increase in production was a promising investment for any farmer which meant they came in packs for his new invention.
