Remember When During World War I, the demand for milk soared when condensed milk was used to fight malnutrition among European conscripts. To support the war effort, President Herbert Hoover asked American civilians to eat less wheat and meat and to consume

more fruit and vegetables. These Milk Ration images are part of many wonderful items of memorabilia that can be seen in the SSVMS Museum of Medical History.

Are you a physician who is near retirement or who has retired? Our museum gladly accepts donations of medical artifacts, equipment and memorabilia. Usable medical tools not appropriate for the museum will be sent overseas to one of several developing hospitals where there is a great need. Contact Dr. Bob LaPerriere, Curator, at xtbob@ surewest.net.
