What else is happening this month? Oregon Archives Events

Dance ContestTomorrow: Taste of the ‘Chives: A Historical Recipes Showcase

Our tastiest offering in observance of Oregon’s heritage this year will be a showcase of historical recipes from Extension publications, USDA Farmer’s Bulletins, and other gems from collections in the Archives and the Library. Sample all manner of sweet and savory treats that were featured in bulletins printed from 1916 to 1939 for use by various audiences, including Boys’ and Girls’ Industrial Clubs, World War One era homemakers looking for wheat and meat substitutes, and aficionados of cheese.

There are plenty of recipes still available and we would love to see more featured in this smorgasbord of bygone tastes! If you want to bring historical tastes back to life, please stop by the Archives Reference Desk on the third floor and ask for the recipe folder. If some dish deeply intrigues you, we can make a copy for you and sign you up- if nothing else they make for fun and interesting reading!
