Description of Original
The map was commissioned in 1875 by sewing-machine magnate, William Emerson
In the mid-1870s, Baker’s activist heart turned to the nascent Pure Food
Movement, which lobbied for stricter regulations on food producers. Baker
became obsessed with hygienic farming. In 1875, he held a social event, to
launch his new “Sanitary Piggery,” concept for a new kind of hog farm featuring
ultra-clean pens and healthy diets.
This map was a souvenir for his guests. Its elaborate detailing included small
illustrations of disputes over pigs that changed American legal history, shown
in the bottom corners.
The map’s border celebrates pork dishes, or menus featuring pork dishes, that
were representative of each state and territory.
