Afternoon at U of M's Clements Library by Kitchen Chick

Kitchen Chick writes about her 2006 eGullet Heartland Gathering, that included a trip to the Janice Bluestein Longone Culinary Archive at the Clements Library at the University of Michigan.

She writes:
If you attended the University of Michigan, as I did, the Clements Library is one of those mysterious buildings that all students look at but most never dare to enter. The beautiful Italian Renaissance style building set on its spacious lawn is home to the American history and culture collections that span from the fifteenth to the early twentieth century, including the Culinary Archive.

Janice Longone herself gave us a tour of the current exhibit. Jan is a well-known food historian and antiquarian culinary publications dealer. She donated her extensive collection to the Clements and has, appropriately, become the Curator of American Culinary History. Her passion for our history from past through present shone as she shared stories about building her collection and the fascinating history and cultural context around each item.
