History of Food and Drink
Found in 2 Collections and/or Records:
The collection contains a single package catalog for the National Biscuit Company. Although the catalog is not dated, one item is from June 1931, suggesting the catalog is from about that time. It includes labels for more than forty crackers, cookies, and other snack items, and the back pages include sample display racks for stores.
The National Biscuit Company Salesman's Collection consists of materials for the use of National Biscuit Company salesman, including blank order forms, a student’s training guide, and a package catalog. Although none of the materials are dated, they may date from about the 1930s, possibly earlier. The order forms and student record book are empty, but a pasted in newspaper at the back of the packaging catalog suggests this may have been used by a salesman in Maine.
