Feeding America: The Historic American Cookbook Project

Michigan University Museum

.

.

The Feeding America project has created an online collection of some of the most important and influential American cookbooks from the late 18th to early 20th century. The digital archive includes page images of 76 cookbooks from the MSU Library’s collection as well as searchable full-text transcriptions. This site also features a glossary of cookery terms and multidimensional images of antique cooking implements from the collections of the MSU Museum.

.

The Feeding America online collection hopes to highlight an important part of America’s cultural heritage for teachers, students, researchers investigating American social history, professional chefs, and lifelong learners of all ages.

MSU Cookery Collection – A brief overview of the coll

” The 76 cookbooks selected for Feeding America: The Historic American Cookbook Project are from MSU’s Cookery Collection, which totals more than 10,000 cookbooks and spans seven centuries. The collection, housed in Special Collections – a division of the MSU Library, features cookbooks written in many different languages from throughout the world

.

It is especially strong in early English cookery and in nineteenth and twentieth-century American cookbooks, thanks to two major gifts: the Mary Ross Reynolds Cookery Collection, and the Beatrice V. Grant Cookbook Collection. There is an important collection of Jewish cookbooks, and an effort is underway to collect community cookbooks, especially those with Michigan origins. Related to this is the Michigan Cookbook Project, an initiative to collect all cookbooks produced by groups and organizations with ties to Michigan.

.

Recently a new direction for collecting has been regions related to the African diaspora. As a result, there are growing collections of African-American cookery, Caribbean cookery, South American cookery, and West and Central African cookery. Besides cookbooks, the collection includes substantial numbers of cookery and food related ephemera, menus, and serial holdings.”
