"Old SleepyEye was aNative American Indian Chief. Sleepy Eye is also the name of a town in southwestern Minnesota. Sleepy Eye stoneware was used as a promotion for selling flour. The pieces of pottery were given away with 50-pound barrels of flour. However, the government intervened in the give-aways perhaps because the rather heavy pottery had a negative effect on the amount of flour that was contained in those barrels!"
