Physical Description: Sixteen (16) five-inch boxes and one (1) oversize 20" box hold the materials in this collection. Oversized material was separated to be stored properly in the obersize cabinet drawers.
Scope and Contents: The American Institute of Baking, renamed AIB International, has been in operation since 1919. This collection maintains the information regarding the American Institute of Baking from their first year of operation to as late at 1998. A significant section of the information is in regards to the policies, regulation, and national defense during war times (WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam War, 1941-1963) and well as to governmental agencies during non-war times. Printed publications make up another large portion of the collection, including consumer surveys, news publications, and magazine articles in regards to baking and selling baked goods in North America, consumer buying habits and surveys, and published materials about cereal. Additional materials are available about backing schools both in the United States and abroad. Notable events that are documented within the collection are the “Eat More Wheat” campaign of the mid 20s, the years of house-to-house sales during the early 30s, the opposition of baking institutions by food faddists such as Carlton Fredericks and Gaylord Hauser, and published congressional records regarding nutrition and health from 1974. Within the collection, there is one box of oversized material, including documentation from several different series. Additionally, a few posters from World War II, a wall chart, a poster about cereal grains, and a food consumption poster are separated from the collection due to size.
