Subtitled “Everything Just Went Right,” this book shows how Ed Nolt’s early life shaped him and that the resources and relationships he formed allowed him to develop the baler, in spite of the struggles he endured. Ed Nolt’s distinctive skills, personal habits, and fertile mind made him a remarkable inventor admired by engineers and entrepreneurs who recognized that his traditional Mennonite background and values were not impediments but were real resources for his success. His inventions helped to cement New Holland’s reputation in the farm equipment industry. (141pp. illus. index. New Holland Area Hist. Soc., 2015.)
