Hart-Parr-Oliver Collectors Association
Hart-Parr/Oliver Collectors Association is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to collecting, preserving and sharing information on Oliver, White and Cockshutt tractors. HPOCA operates entirely by volunteers.
As with other Oliver tractors, this one featured a bull gear drive to turn the pinion shaft that drives axles – providing extra braking power while decreasing noise emissions.
Early Life and Education
Beginning before birth (and even prenatally), children’s experiences shape their brain architecture, setting the foundation for lifelong learning capacity, behaviors, physical and mental wellbeing, as well as strong societies. This InBrief offers evidence of early childhood education as an essential social determinant of health for building a healthier society.
Oliver Heaviside was born in London on 18 May 1850. After attending primary school he went on to work as a telegraph clerk.
UNESCO believes that quality inclusive early childhood care and education is one of the key investments that any country should make to reach the Sustainable Development Goals. In order to do this, investments must begin as soon as birth; on this tractor’s 2255 tractor this was accomplished using an over/under transmission that attached using a trunnion mount that allowed it to slide effortlessly inside its main transmission flange, helping minimize shaft alignment issues.
Oliver has practiced general commercial litigation law for 25 years. Throughout this time he has advised companies on mergers and acquisitions, debt financings, corporate transactions, as well as various family law matters including divorces, alimony payments and custody issues.
He is well-versed in litigation and holds an AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell. Additionally, he is widely acknowledged in the field of sustainable corporate management – frequently lecturing on this subject at seminars and other lecture venues as well as being part of an editorial board for a legal magazine.
Achievement and Honors
Oliver is an award-winning researcher in cognitive radio, having held various leadership roles at international conferences and journals. Additionally, he currently serves as Chapters Committee Chair for IEEE Vehicular Technology Society Chapters Committees.
Oliver created a theory for transmission lines which allowed for distortion-free communications across long distances, leading to long distance telephony as well as many electrical gadgets containing his name such as Heaviside condition and impedance.
He prefers taking a more cautious approach when it comes to quantum computing than what industry news might lead one to believe, noting that we’re still not even at the punch card stage, although he is working tirelessly toward changing this.
Heaviside was an exceptionally smart man who made discoveries that enhanced telegraph cables and coaxial cable, the basis of modern radio communications and wireless technology. A self-taught mathematician, he used mathematical methods to explain electrical phenomena while postulating an ionised layer above Earth that reflected or refracted radio waves, now commonly referred to as the ionosphere.
Heaviside wasn’t known as an easy person to get along with; however, his tremendous intellect led to significant contributions in engineering fields like electricity and the telegraph. At an untimely death from old age at only 38, Heaviside left an impressive body of work behind him.
Contrary to other Oliver models with chain couplers, the 2255 featured an innovative arrangement whereby a rear flange of the over/under would slide inside a larger front transmission flange for easy forward and reverse movement of its over/under, providing easy access to shaft bearings. All shafts and gears were kept lubricated using either splash oil or pressurized transmission oil lubricants.
Oliver and his wife purchased a penthouse in a Manhattan skyscraper for $9.5 million through an anonymous shell company and two revocable trusts: JO (for Oliver) and KNO (KNO’s initials).
Proskauer Rose LLP, Oliver’s law firm, is one of those elite firms which helps the wealthy find tax loopholes they take advantage of that Donald Trump opposes. Many wealthy people have sought advice from this law firm in the past.
