A Taste of General Mills
5 - The Washburn legacyJanuary 12, 2016 General Mills
To kick off our 150th anniversary, we focus this episode of the show on Cadwallader Washburn and the early years of flour milling in Minneapolis. Washburn is considered the founder of the company that eventually would become General Mills. We talked with Fred Keller from the Mill City Museum, who provides perspective on how Minneapolis became the global center of the flour industry. And Tom Forsythe, vice president of Global Communications at General Mills, reflects on Washburn's colorful public career and legacy in politics, the military, business and philanthropy.
