Van Dusen Harrington

Van Dusen-Harrington was one of the largest grain dealers in the world. Harrington began working for George Van Dusen, who had established a grain processing and distribution business, and in 1883, he became the head of the business’ Minneapolis office. Harrington and Van Dusen organized the Van Dusen-Harrington Company in 1889, which became one of the largest grain firms of its time (City of Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission). In 1907, the Van Dusen-Harrington Company and its subsidiaries operated around 400 country grain elevators and owned 50 retail lumber yards according to the publication Little Sketches of Big Folks.
