Dodge & Olcott Achievement Award Medal1955
RAW-DO
Bronze

The obverse bears seated Ceres, goddess of Plenty, holding cornucopia in right and cradling seated calf at her left; around edge, pig, sheep, chicken and cow. Around inside of center field, DODGE & OLCOTT ACHIEVEMENT AWARD; at bottom in small cartouche, D.& O / ESTABLISHED (????)

The reverse bears inscription FOR / OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION / TO THE GROWTH & WELFARE / OF THE MEAT PACKING INDUSTRY / AWARDED / TO / (cartouche) / 19 (cartouche)

While Dodge & Olcott were mainly known as a chemical firm that created basic ingredients for perfume and apothecary needs, they also seemed to have a presence in the agricultural sector. I was not able to track down any public news articles relating to this award but D&O sponsored scholarships for promising agrichemical students.

This medal measures 76mm in diameter and was struck by the Medallic Art Company of New York.
