A collection of 828 photos, graphs and other images used for dairy education from 1918 to 1948 by Professor Boke van der Burg at the 'Landbouwhogeschool' in Wageningen. The images cover tools and machines for milk processing, cheese and butter making and other subjects related to the dairy industry in the first half of the 20th century.
The images in the Dairy Education collection come from the heritage of Professor Boke van der Burg who worked in Wageningen from 1913 to 1949. From 1918 until 1949, he was a professor at the Landbouwhogeschool, the predecessor of Wageningen University & Research. His chair was called 'Zuivelbereiding en melkkunde'.
Professor van der Burg used glass slides to display images about dairy preparation, dairy techniques and dairy industry in his classes.
