In August of 2007, the Residential Life Office donated a box of recipes and a scrapbook found in the basement of Bemis Hall, CC’s women’s dormitory built in 1908. Bemis had its own dining hall until 2001. This new acquisition gives us a taste (so to speak) of what CC women students might have eaten around 1920. Index cards show recipes for dishes such as Ham Balls, Raw Parsnip Salad, and “Fluffy Surprise” (pictured). The scrapbook contains handwritten breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus for 1919-20, along with recipes clipped from newspapers and a list of dormitory rules such as “Students are asked not to turn the bath room into a laundry.”
