We like food and we like history, and of course we like sharing the food history resources we have in SCARC.

Winter term we are hosting a student intern, Alexys Gibson, a History student in her final year at OSU. She’ll be digging into our archival and library collections looking for materials related to recipes, home gardening, food and fermentation science, farming, the domestic economy, and local history. The goal isn’t to write a history on these topics, rather to create a guide to give you a jump start on your own research.

Each week she’ll be sharing what she found in a blog post — so be on the lookout!
