From "Waiting for a Gallery": A 1995 gift of over 400 Hood Milk Company items documents not only the history of an important New England company but also its impact on people's lives. Promotional items like Hoodsie paper ice cream lids, glass cottage cheese containers and Currier & Ives drinking glasses, were intended to encourage brand loyalty and quickly became collectibles.
