Scope and Contents of the Materials

The cookbooks in this collection date from 1912 to 2014. They are arranged by county and then alphabetically by the original creator of the cookbook. The collection has cookbooks from DeKalb, Lake, LaSalle, and McHenry counties. The bulk of the cookbooks were created by organizations throughout the northern Illinois region as a way to compile recipes and stories from its members. Some of the cookbooks were created as a means for raising money for the organization, while a few were given out for promotional purposes. The Center has other recipes and cookbooks scattered throughout its collections; however, the cookbooks in this collection were given to the Center as single items and compiled into a new collection.

Access Restrictions: There are no restrictions to this collection.

Use Restrictions: Property rights in the collection belong to the Regional History Center; literary rights are dedicated to the public. There are no restrictions on access to the collection

Acquisition Method: The Regional History Center’s cookbook collection was formed as a result of a number of unsolicited cookbook and recipe donations following the 2014 exhibit highlighting recipes and cookbooks from the Center’s collections. Instead of adding each cookbook to the Vertical File Collection, the newly formed Cookbook Collection (RC 340) would allow other additions and donations to be easily added in the future.
