Munsingwear from the Special Collections Trade Catalog Collection
We have a great trade catalog collection at Hennepin County Library. The collection covers a wide variety of Minneapolis-based manufacturers from Minneapolis-Moline to Munsingwear. The Munsingwear factory building still exists, it is now International Market Square and the Penguin brand is still being used as well.
Susan Marks, who wrote an excellent book on Betty Crocker, has an new book, In the Mood for Munsingwear coming out in April from Minnesota Historical Society Press. There will also be a MHS exhibit coinciding with the book’s release that will be up from May-September 2011.
