From the factory to the table : advertising cookbooks and the changing face of American domestic cookery 1880-1941 exhibit, archived website
This exhibition draws from Bryn Mawr's growing collection of cookbooks a selection of advertising cookbooks ranging from the late 19th century to the middle of the 20th which document the increasing standardization and mechanization of American cooking as it is marketed to the female consumer, who is at once acknowledged to be busy outside of the home and yet expected to continue in her traditional role as primary cook.
