CSD75: Soybean Digest: Advertising in the 1940s

As part of our 75th birthday, we look back at interesting stories during each decade (first installment here: http://bit.ly/CSD1940s). For fun, we’ll take a look at the some of the advertising during each decade, since these valuable companies provide the revenue that allows us to send you a free magazine. And good content isn’t cheap. In fact, the association lost $2,000 in the first year of publishing Soybean Digest, but they vowed to continue support of this valuable information for farmers.

Check out these advertisements that we found from November 1940 to October 1941.
