Biography

Susan Wineberg is an Ann Arbor, Michigan local historian.


Collection Scope and Content Note

The Susan Wineberg cookbook collection contains printed recipe books compiled, produced and published by various Michigan manufacturers, food companies, business firms, churches, organizations, and individuals. The collection was originally accumulated from a variety of sources from the donor Susan Weinberg.

The cookbooks are arranged by the name of the town according to geographic location of the compiler, author, or publisher. In cases where items were published by a local division of a large company with multiple locations, the cookbooks are arranged according to the location of such divisions, and not company main headquarters. For example, cookbooks published by the Ann Arbor branch of Michigan Consolidated Gas Company (MCGC) are located with Ann Arbor materials, while publications of the main branch of MCGC can be found with Detroit materials.

The collection contains a handful of items published outside of Michigan, but printed or distributed by Michigan institutions. Such items can be found under Michigan location. For instance, Recipe book using G. & I Keses village Halloumi by Cyprus-based G. & I Keses Ltd. is located under its Ann Arbor located distributor, Mediterranean Ventures YNC.
