Doug Sutherland / Shaw Brothers Dairy Collection


Summary: Doug Sutherland is a descendant of the Shaw Family, and items were collected and passed down through the family. The Shaw Bros.

The Shaws sold the business to Dairyland in 1929. This collection consists of artifacts, photographs, business records and brochures, postcards, and ephemera related to Shaw Creamery.
