"What's Cooking, Uncle Sam?"
June 17 to August 13, 2017
The exhibit's eclectic records were all produced in the course of Government efforts to ensure that Americans enjoy an ample, safe, and nutritious diet. Spanning the Revolutionary War to the late 1900s, the letters, photographs, pamphlets, posters, films, and radio programs echo many of our current concerns about Government's role in the health and safety of our food supply. The exhibit is a winning combination of nostalgia, humor, and intriguing insights about the history of the government that helped our diet.
