Scope and Contents

From the Series:

From the Collection: The first series in this collection is cookery manuscripts. The inventory for the manuscripts was originally compiled by Chef Louis Szathmary and his assistants and is offered here to preserve Szathmary's distinctive voice as well as indications of his interest in each item. Descriptions of similar materials acquired by the University of Iowa Libraries after Szathmary's original gift have been added to the inventory and are noted. Clippings are included after the Algren series. Szathmary wrote a column called "Louis Szathmary on Life" and edited a column called "Table Talk" for Inside Lincoln Park and he also wrote a column called "Chef Louis" for the Chicago Sunday Times. These columns for the years 1987-- 1988 are here, as well as various articles about Szathmary that appeared in diverse publications. Appraisal documents for the entire Szathmary collection are found in a separate series following the culinary manuscripts. Note: This collection is not shelved in MsC numerical sequence but rather is located on the east and south walls of the room in which the Szathmary Culinary Arts Collection has been placed.

Materials Specific Details

Pat and Jack Brangle owned Llewelyn's Pub in St. Louis from 1975-1997. These are cook books created by people who loved food and had a great talent for making it. They also had talent in drawing and each of these books has its own feel. Handwritten, for the most part, in a distinctive hand, they present a wide range of recipes, including ones scaled to feed a crowd, which they apparently used at the pub. These cook books contain dairies of trips and clippings which interested them as well. Most of them are decorated with Pat's inimitable drawings and decorations.
