The brand name 'Quaker Oats' was registered as a trade mark in the United States in 1877. The figure of a man in traditional Quaker clothing was used to represent good quality and honest value, as are the three beatific children on this advert. Significantly, Quaker Oats was the first brand to feature a recipe on its boxes; it was for oatmeal bread.
