Was handed a very cool piece of history this morning.
From the Grinnell College Newsletter, Vol. 7, 1928, No.5, it reads “Murray McMurray, (class of 1910) of Webster city, recently shipped nine purebred Bourbon Red turkeys to Ozaki brothers poultry farm, Tokyo Japan. The express on the birds was $128.76, more than the cost of the birds themselves. Among the items of expense was $10 to the ship’s butcher for feeding them en route. Insurance against drowning cost $3.50, while life insurance cost $12.”
