Malt-O-Meal Legacy Exhibit
Northfield Historical Society to Collect Malt-O-Meal Stories
NHS Seeks Input for Centennial of Malt-O-Meal Exhibit in 2019
The Northfield Historical Society (NHS) is asking current and former MOM employees for stories to add to their Malt-O-Meal Collection. The NHS plans to include these experiences in a special exhibition on the Malt-O-Meal brand’s centennial in 2019.
The NHS has an extensive Malt-O-Meal Collection, which was donated by the John S. Campbell family after Post Holdings, Inc., purchased MOM Brands in 2015. “What this collection doesn’t have,” said Curator of Special Collections Stephanie Hess, “are the stories, photographs, and experiences of current and former employees of Malt-O-Meal—now Post Consumer Brands.” She added, “It’s important to include these stories in our upcoming exhibition because this centennial is not only about the corporate history of Malt-O-Meal, it’s about the people in our community who have worked there over the years.”
The NHS is pleased to mark this historic occasion, and we welcome the community’s involvement in our project. Please call 507-645-9268 to speak with Stephanie Hess or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have contributions or questions regarding our centennial celebration of Malt-O-Meal.
