Praise from the Pacific
I just went through the summer issue of the magazine (pdf version). It is a gorgeous issue! I just subscribed. I’m an alum who lives in San Francisco, so this was a nice way to learn what is happening on campus. Thanks.

To the “Dragons” who remember Abbotts Dairies, next door on Chestnut Street: I am a Drexel graduate, 92 years old, and I lived in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania. My first position when I graduated from Drexel was as dietitian at Bryn Mawr Hospital and three years later I was employed by Abbotts Dairies as program director for the ice cream division. What a fabulous position! I’ve kept all these years an Abbotts glass milk bottle from 1925 when milk was delivered in glass bottles to our door. Was there any historical value to it? I called Drexel’s Alumni Relations office for advice and I was directed to the Philadelphia History Museum — the history museum now owns the Abbotts glass bottle and it’s in their database.
