HYDE PARK, N.Y. – The archives at The Conrad N. Hilton Library on the New York campus of The Culinary Institute of America are opening to the public for tours and discussions.
A new program on the first Thursday of every month welcomes visitors to learn more about the library’s special collections. These tours provide an insider’s glimpse at rare menus and documents, as well as sneak peeks of newly discovered materials. The free program is from noon to 2 p.m.
November’s tour will delve into Craig Claiborne’s scrapbooks of clippings dating from 1949-88.
Future topics include the history of the CIA property, the former St. Andrew-on-Hudson Jesuit novitiate; patent medicine pamphlets from the late 1800s; rare historical cookbooks; railroad menus from World War II; and wartime letters from wine importer Julius Wile as he toured European vineyards.
