The Szathmary Recipe Pamphlet Collection

The Szathmary Recipe Pamphlet Collection at The University of Iowa Libraries. "...Louis Szathmary (1919–1996) was a Hungarian-born chef, restaurateur, and food writer, best known as proprietor of The Bakery restaurant in Chicago. Szathmary amassed one of the largest culinary archives in the United States, a portion of which is housed at the University of Iowa Libraries. The University’s collection includes more than 4,000 promotional recipe pamphlets, published mainly by food and appliance manufacturers and trade associations. Dating from the late 19th century to the present, this advertising ephemera reflects the evolution of the modern American diet."
