MSC Creamery Milk Bottle Cap3D Model
Given to CAP by a professor from the Agricultural program at MSU, this milk bottle cap originally would have been on top of an MSC Creamery milk bottle. Using the dairy cows on campus, the College bottled and sold MSC-brand milk. Today, most people are familiar with the dairy culture on campus through MSU-made ice cream at one of the locations of the Dairy Store on campus.
MSU has changed its name a number of times throughout its history, allowing us to date objects and artifacts with the institution’s name on it. In this case, ‘MSC’ stands for Michigan State College which was the official name from 1925-1955. Because of this, we know that the bottle cap dates within these three decades. CAP has also found MSC Creamery bottles during investigations, which indicates that the dairy culture on campus has been an tenet of the institution’s identity.
