Additional Information

Pottery made from North Dakota clay was first displayed at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. Earle J. Babcock, Dean of College of Mining Engineering, was interested in promoting the properties of North Dakota clay. All the finished pieces, sewer pipe, paving brick, drain tiles, tableware, and decorative art pottery were made by potteries in Ohio, the J.B. Owen's Pottery Company and the Roseville Pottery Company.
