Julia Child’s voluminous and fascinating papers are just one of several collections of prominent women in the world of food at Harvard's Schlesinger Library. Their papers are nestled in comprehensive collection of cookbooks, culinary periodicals, product pamphlets, and menus that give depth and context to the record of their achievements. Schlesinger’s broader mission to document the lives of women in America further enhances their meaning and provides researchers with unparalleled resources. Curator Marylène Altieri will introduce you to the range of these materials, with perhaps some timely recipes thrown in!
