The dairy industry has been a key part of Vermont's economy for well over a century, and as such milk pricing, government subsidies, and oleomargarine are hotly debated topics throughout the Green Mountain State. This digital collection from the University of Vermont Libraries brings together documents that tell the legislative history of such matters. George D. Aiken collected the documents, and all told there are 38 different pieces in the archive. Many interesting items are available here, including a letter to the National Milk Producers Federation and items dealing with the proposed importation of cows from Canada. Overall, it's quite a collection, and one that will be of interest to policy scholars, agriculturalists, and others with a penchant for Vermont or dairy history.
