Scope and Content

The collection contains ledgers that document the quantity of milk purchased in Connecticut from 1922 through 1937. It appears that each member milk producer kept his own ledgers, which were then bound together by the CMPA with those of other members. The ledgers record patron names, amounts of milk specified and produced, and cost and payment for each milk producer. Each volume covers a six month period and is arranged alphabetically by name of milk producer. The Bulletin was issued monthly and is bound chronologically.
