Summary:
Collection consists primarily of cookbooks and similar forms of literature containing recipes and - or information relating to food customs, created by producers and manufacturers of foods products, cooking utensils, kitchen appliances and equipment.
Scope and Contents note:
The collection was created by the Archives Center to form a body of material from producers and manufacturers of food products, cooking utensils, kitchen appliances and equipment. It consists primarily of cookbooks, recipe booklets, circulars, recipe cards, and clippings containing recipes or information relating to food customs. Most of these materials were published in the United States by producers and manufacturers of foods, seasonings, and condiments. Some of the materials were created by manufacturers of both small and large kitchen appliances and include operating instructions for these products. There are also materials created by electric and gas utility companies. Some of the materials relate to the canning and freezing processes. Materials created by manufacturers of alcoholic beverages also contain recipes for both food and drinks. All bound materials have soft covers with the exception of The Victory Binding of the American Woman's Cookbook, Wartime Edition, 1943.

The collection is arranged in two series. Series One consists of bound materials including cookbooks and recipe booklets. These materials are arranged in alphabetical order. Series two are unbound materials including recipe flyers, folders, recipe cards, cooking class recipe sheets, recipes clipped from publications, and hand written recipes. The materials are arranged first in alphabetical order by name of company and then in order by genre.
