Description (Brief)
This is the side panel of a shipping crate for Darigold Evaporated Milk, the milk brand of the United Dairy Association of Washington. In 1918, five Washington State dairy co-operatives combined to create the United Dairymen’s Association in an attempt to open new markets for their dairy products. In 1925, there was a contest amongst the co-operatives dairy farmers to name the company’s brand, and Darigold won.
