Special Collections and University Archives

This week — October 21-27 — is North Carolina Archives Week, an annual, week-long observance of the agencies and people responsible for maintaining and making available the archival and historical records of our nation, state, communities and people. The Archives Week theme for 2013 is “Home Grown! A Celebration of N.C. Food Culture and History.”

Preserving food during World War I

To celebrate, SCUA has developed an exhibit in Jackson Library featuring images, publications, and other archival materials related to culinary history. Stop by the large exhibit case at the library’s College Avenue entrance through the end of October to see historic images from the campus’s dairy farm, home economics department, dining halls, and more!

You can also read excerpts from Tea-Kettle Talk, a 1924 cookbook published by the Alumnae Association of the North Carolina College for Women (now UNCG), on the Spartan Stories blog.
