McAdoo Milk Cap

This old milk cap was just donated to CHS. McAdoo Milk was located at 52 Clay Street and distributed milk to many homes in Cambridge. Jean McAdoo wrote a story for Growing Up In North Cambridge in which she talked about what it was like for her husband, Bill, to grow up on Green Acres Farm (AKA McAdoo Milk) in North Cambridge. Apparently, Bill is the child on the bottle cap and worked for Green Acres for years. He drove up to farms in Vermont to collect milk and brought it back to Clay Street where it was pasteurized, bottled and distributed. He later fought in WWII and worked for the CIA. He eventually ended up back in Cambridge with a law office in Porter Square, William A. McAdoo, Jr. and William Corkery, Attorneys At Law.
