About this Exhibit

The exhibition Alma Lach’s Kitchen: Transforming Taste was curated by Eileen Ielmini, Brittan Nannenga, and Catherine Uecker along with exhibition designer, Joseph Scott. In addition to selections from the Alma S. Lach Papers and the Alma Lach Culinary Library, the exhibition also includes a few selections from the University of Chicago Press Records.

The Special Collections Research Center is indebted to Sandra Lach Arlinghaus and William C. Arlinghaus for donating Alma’s papers and cookbook collection to the Library. We are also grateful to Sandy for all her support and guidance as we developed the exhibition. Her memories of her mother were invaluable.

The exhibition was on display from September 19, 2016 - January 6, 2017.
