H. M. Wallis, Jr., manager of the Wallis Tractor Company, which was organized in 1912, was born in Racine on the 24th of January, 1888, a son of H. M. and Jessie (Case) Wallis. He pursued his education as a student in Racine College, the Manor School at Stamford, Connecticut and in the Hotchkiss School of Salisbury, Connecticut, and when his school days were over he returned to Racine, whore he secured employment in the J. I. Case Plow Works. He advanced through all departments in the shop, gaining comprehensive knowledge of the business, and afterward traveled for the corporation out of the Dallas (Texas) office, representing the company in all for about five years. On the expiration of that period he was made manager of the Wallis Tractor Company, which was organized in 1912 for the manufacture of farm and road tractors. This business has rapidly developed and the value of its output has become widely known, so that the sale now extends widely over American territory.

In 1912 Mr. Wallis was married to Miss Gertrude Allien, of Stamford, Connecticut. He is identified with the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks and he has membership in the Country Club. He also belongs to the Commercial Club and in politics is a republican. He has neither time nor inclination to seek public office, however, as the development of his business claims his entire attention. He is a young man of keen discrimination and sound judgment and his executive ability and excellent management have brought to the concern with which he is connected a large degree of success.
