From the archives of the Normanby Dairy Factory come a range of new acquisitions to Aotea Utanganui for 2016.  Thanks to Max Sayer for considering to donate his father’s archives, cheese-maker Russell L. Sayer, to the museum about his days at the Normanby Dairy Company.

Some of theses materials include awards certificates, trophies, photographs, and rosettes awarded to Russell L. Sayer during his time at the Normanby Dairy Factory.

Storage & Access

For the correct storage of a collection like this, conservation boxes are employed to house these objects giving them maximum security and protection over the years we need to care for them.  Labels on these boxes also help us identify how to find them again in the archives room, especially for a customer request.  If anyone wants to view this collection, you’re welcome to contact the District Archivist Cameron S. Curd cameron.curd@stdc.govt.nz or 0800 111 323 for an appointment time.
