Special Collections Items Included in “Eat” at the Fleming Museum


A student-curated exhibit at the Fleming Museum, Eat: The Social Life of Food, examines the dynamic relationship between people and food. In addition to a wide-ranging group of objects from the Fleming Museum collections, the exhibit team found several items in Special Collection’s trove of Vermontiana. These include cake recipes from an 1845 cookbook and two articles from an 1869 issue of The Household, a magazine published in Brattleboro for American housewives.

Eat: The Social Life of Food will be on display from September 17, 2013-May 18, 2014. The museum is sponsoring programs related to the exhibit throughout the semester.
