Dig through Extension history

If you want to know how folks were Shopping for Wood Furniture in the 1950s or Keeping It Cool (milk after milking, that is) 1970s-style, take a look in the Extension section of Purdue Library e-Pub archives:
Retired, historic Extension publications now have found a home in the Purdue Libraries' digital archives. Becky Goetz, coordinator for the Agricultural Communication Publishing Unit and Education Store, said staff found a treasure-trove of old documents when they cleared the corners of the warehouse that formerly housed the Education Store.

"As current and future Extension publications are retired, they'll be added to the digital archive," Goetz said.
