Scope and Content

The Culinary Pamphlet Collection is an artificial collection created in January 2011. The collection includes small publications and pamphlets created and distributed by culinary, appliance, and other food-related companies from about the 1870s to the 1990s. Most pamphlets contain advertisements, recipes, product information, testimonials, or some combination of all four.

The collection represents a diverse set of companies and products. Examples include items from the World War II era with recipes and tips for rationing and substituting for "Victory," publications featuring recipes using a specific kitchen appliance, weight loss hints from the National Dairy Council, and recipe books produced by heating and air conditioning vendors as advertising. The majority of titles in the collection relate to specific food products, especially flour, baking powder, baking soda, and various gelatines like Knox and Jell-O.

Arrangement

Publications and pamphlets are sorted by the name of the parent companies. Companies are arranged in alphabetical order. Since many companies changed names over time, an effort has been made to provide as many company names as possible. The earliest known company is listed first with subsequent names in parentheses.

Within each parent company, pamphlets are in chronological order. Each folder includes a bibliography of pamphlet and publication titles, dates, and authors, where known. Cross-references to other companies are listed at the folder level, if applicable.

Related Material

The History of Food and Drink Collection at Special Collections includes more than 75 manuscript collections relating to culinary history, including from handwritten receipt books, advertising ephemera, and items documenting the history of cocktails, food technology and production, and children's nutrition. A list of collections is available online through Virginia Heritage. You can search within this list, too.

    Historical Note

    The Cereal Machine Company was established in 1892. It also known as The Shredded Wheat Company, a name change that became permanent after 1908. As additional plants were built between 1895 and 1925, most had a separate name, including The Natural Food Company (Niagara Falls), The Canadian Shredded Wheat Company (Niagara Falls), and The Pacific Shredded Wheat Company (Oakland, CA), although all produced the same cereal. Eventually, The Shredded Wheat Company was bought out by The National Biscuit Company, now Nabisco Brands, Inc.
