1959 Food Stockpile for Survival Pamphlet
Back in the 1950's Americans, World War II over but still in recent memory, responded to a perceived Russian nuclear threat by building and stocking fallout shelters. How-to books, pamphlets and tapes were distributed on this subject. I found this Department of Agriculture's food stockpiling pamphlet while going through some old papers and pamphlets in Grandma G's stuff. They lived through very interesting times. Just like us.
