Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection contains thousands of food and cookery related publications produced primarily by companies in the United States from the late nineteenth century up to the present. The collection provides a rich resource to study the evolution and history of advertising, food products, individual companies, technology, food preparation, and food production. It was organized, described, and donated in 2005 by Shirley Brocker Sliker, who continues to add items to the collection. In 2006 the Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Library Endowment was established to enhance the Sliker Collection through acquisitions, conservation, digitization, and dissemination endeavors.
