JJ Jacobson, as curator of the collection, will join the staff of the Special Collections Library. Jan Longone, in her role as “ambassador” for the JBLCA, will be appointed as adjunct curator. Over the course of the coming months, Clements and Special Collections staff will work together to ensure a smooth transfer of the collection itself, which will be available for research at the Clements until sometime this spring, when it will be available in the Special Collections Library.
The Clements will continue to hold a fine collection of materials for research in early American culinary history. We look forward to working with our colleagues in the Special Collections Library to ensure that researchers have access to the full range of resources for the study of culinary history and related topics.
