Internet search including the General Mills site indicates: The history of General Mills commences in 1856 with Cadwallader C. Washburn, who structured the Minneapolis Milling Company to lease power rights to mill operators.
Forming the Washburn Crosby; Company John Crosby joined Cadwallader Washburn as a partner in the milling industry in 1877. It was the second step in the evolution of the business to eventually become General Mills.
In the meantime, Charles Pillsbury started his company in 1869. Situated just across the Mississippi River from Washburn's facility; New Hampshire resident Pillsbury, had no experience in flour milling, nevertheless he made a return the first year from the derelict Minneapolis Flour Mill he and his relatives acquired.
Pillsbury began to the road to success as did the Washburn Crosby Company.
James Stroud Bell, a forceful merchandiser, assumed leadership of the Washburn Crosby mills in 1888. Bell was influential in developing the national flour market and led the company to extraordinary development over the next three decades. His son, James Ford Bell, carried on the practice; rising to president of industry leader Washburn Crosby Company, Bell led Washburn Crosby merger with numerous regional millers in June 1928 to generate General Mills, Inc.
The consolidation melded several giants of the milling industry, including Kansas' Red Star Milling Company; the Sperry Milling Company from the West Coast; Michigan's Larrowe Milling Company; the Kell Group from the Southwest; and Montana's Kalispell Flour Mill, Rocky Mountain Elevator Company, and Royal Milling Company.
Today General Mills, with reputation boosted by the acquisition of one-time, hometown rival Pillsbury continues as one of the world's foremost consumer foods companies. The amalgamation of the companies created one of the largest food companies in North America.
