Creamery Farm Ladies

"Farm Femmes" (Women's Land Army Participants) in the creamery, 1942

The University of Connecticut’s history is rooted in the traditions of agriculture.  This was still a prevalent field in the 1940’s and 1950’s.  In our latest tribute to alumni weekend this June 5th & 6th, we are sharing two of the many wonderful photos taken by Jerauld Manter that show how enjoyable a glass of fresh milk can truly be.
