One-Pound Butter Box from the Michigan State College Creamery.

East Lansing nd (1910s-20s?) Oblong, 2.5 x 4.75, circumference 10.5, printed and pictorial waxy cardboard. Light/moderate wear, soling else good. Photo of the Dairy Building on two sides and the other two sides "One Pound Net Pasteurized Cream M.S.C. Creamery Butter East Lansing," the ends have the initials. Green lettering on a white background (of course). Dairy classes were moved to a new dairy building (previously in the basement of the old Agricultural Laboratory building) in 1900 and in 1913 to an even larger facility. The dairy program was the heart of the Michigan Agricultural College (later named Michigan State University). Short courses were introduced in the mid-1890s, making it easier for farm youth to attend. The six-eight week courses in the winter showed them new methods on how to be better farmers. Some of the more popular courses were making butter, cheese and ice cream.
