Biographical/Historical Information

Rosemary Brandau served as manager of Historic Area food programs for Colonial Williamsburg from 1983 until her death in 1993. She oversaw daily operations at the Governor's Palace and Wythe House kitchens, as well as program development for the historic foodways program. In addition, she served as a consultant for menu development and food presentation at the taverns. Her efforts to create more authentic presentations of food preparation and dining in the Historic Area are documented in this research collection.

Scope and Content Information

The Rosemary Brandau Papers include files Rosemary Brandau compiled while participating in the Attingham Summer School on the British Country House from July 7-25, 1989. As manager of historic food programs at Colonial Williamsburg, Brandau was studying kitchens and domestic work spaces in preparation for making modifications to the "British" kitchen at the Governor's Palace. Her files consist primarily of guidebooks for various country houses and slides she shot while touring the homes. The collection also includes a file of clippings and pamphlets concerning the recreated Tudor kitchens at Hampton Court Palace. In addition, the files encompass some correspondence and research notes related to her participation in the Attingham Summer School.

Arrangement

Rosemary Brandau's original arrangement of her research files has been preserved. The slides accompanying written materials are filed alphabetically by the names of the various country houses.
