Summary

left to right: Henry Williams Jeffers (1871-1953), President of the Walker-Gordon Laboratory in New Jersey, which was part of the Borden Research Foundation; and Dr. Hubert Everett Van Norman (1872-1938), Director of the Borden Research Foundation. The men are shown "survey[ing] the Walker-Gordon system of milk production." At Walker-Gordon Laboratory, the world's largest certified dairy farm, Jeffers invented the Rotolactor (milking a large number of cows using a rotating platform) and the covered milk pail; he later became active in the Republican party in New Jersey. Van Norman was the author of many books about milk and butter.
