Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Dairy forms part of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Subseries 1.1: Subject Categories. The Subject Categories subseries is divided into 470 subject categories based on those created by Mr. Warshaw. These subject categories include topical subjects, types or forms of material, people, organizations, historical events, and other categories. An overview to the entire Warshaw collection is available here: Warshaw Collection of Business Americana
Scope and Contents:
This material consists primarily of advertising cards, catalogues, price lists, pamphlets, milk jar caps, brochures, bills/receipts, printed advertisements, scattered correspondence on letterhead stationery, circulars, labels, recipe books and business cards from manufacturers and dealers of dairy machinery and dairy products. Machinery and supplies include milk coolers, milk cooler-aerators, cream separators and testers, churns, cream gauges, milk pans, cheese presses, scales, curd mills, butter prints, thermometers, butter color, cans, skimmers, pullies and engines. A number of companies also sold machinery and supplies for farm use such as devices for watering stock in stables. Dairy products mostly include milk, eggs, cheese, cream cheese, lard, poultry, sherbets, and butter. Willet & Chandler is the only company that appears to manufacture ice cream. Occasionally confectionery, fish and beans were sold with these products.

There are a number of publications included among the material. Company publications discuss their own company's history, the means for producing good dairy cows, the history of cheese, principles and practices of butter-making, milk and cheese as healthy food particularly for children, how to prevent diseases caused by unsanitary milk, cow testing associations and handbooks on feeding cows. A number of publication s are from the Department of Agriculture along with some speeches, reports and addresses by various individuals which cover some of the same topics. There are a few catalogues from cattle shows and exhibitions. The Diary Museum in Philadelphia also has a few items, A copy of the Department of Livestock's Rules, Information and Premium List, (1892) is also included.

The bulk of the material is late nineteenth century. Materials in boxes one and two are organized by name of company. Box three is partially arranged by subject and then by type. Box four contains related publications and 693 milk jar caps. These caps are made of cardboard and are pasted in a book arranged in alphabetical order by name of company. Some of the companies listed in the container list may be included. There are companies that are not included in the list if the milk jar cap is the only item from that particular company.

For a period after acquisition, related materials from other sources (of mixed provenance) were added to the collection so there may be content produced or published after Warshaw's death in 1969. This practice has since
