Scope and content

A weekly publication for the US and international flour milling industry, bakers and adjacent industries. The journal was published from 1873 to 1973. The Mills Archive holds one of the most complete runs of the journal, including many issues dated between 1886 and 1909, and almost every issue from 1925 onwards.

The content of these journals includes: weekly national and international grain market reports; yield reports; national and international economic and government policy articles and reports; milling, baking, weather, and other related industry articles and commentaries; social and cultural content such as wedding announcements, obituaries, job change notices, job advertisements, and professional profiles. Each journal contains an ‘Index of Advertisers’ and extensive advertisements for flour, mills, insecticides, flour bags and flour sacks, and other industry-related businesses and services.

The content of the journals reflects the attitudes of its time and some of the language and images may be offensive or upsetting.
