The father of the American diesel truck engine, Cummins combined elbow grease, a keen mind, and rural pragmatism to co-found what became Cummins, Inc., a Fortune 500 international diesel and alternative fuel engines company headquartered in Columbus, Indiana. Through a series of hardships and achievements, Cummins never stopped asking "what if?" His formal education ended in the eighth grade, but he never stopped experimenting due to his inexhaustible sense of wonder. Cummins's inventions earned 33 US patents over his lifetime, and the name Cummins became synonymous with diesel.
