Scope & Content Booklet: Radio Recipes of Davis Baking Powder. R.B. Davis Co., Hoboken. N.J. Copyright 1927. Booklet, 5-1/8" wide x 7-1/2" high, 20 pp. While copyrighted 1927 and assumed that it was issued in that year, it may have been available or issued at later dates.

Sixteen pages have three recipes per page which all call for the company's signature product which was made in Hoboken. Each is credited to a listener who created them, presumably radio program listeners responding to a promotion. The recipes have their names and at least their city, but many have the actual street address. No sponsored radio shows are named.

Page [20] and inside back cover have an advertisement for Cocomalt and it appears on the back cover. It was another product made by the company in Hoboken and a depiction of its container is featured at the top each page along with the baking powder. Some recipes include Cocomalt in the ingredients.
