Sixth Annual Open Archives Tour:
Adventures in Gastronomy
MIT Institute Archives and Special Collections (14N-118)
The chemistry of food, the chemical processes of cooking, and the effects of food and toxins on the body have long been topics of research interest at MIT. Visitors will get a taste of some of the research (by MIT folks & others) documented in the collections of the MIT Institute Archives and Special Collections. Menus from different events throughout the history of the Institute will also be on hand.
The Institute Archives and Special Collections serves as the "memory" of MIT, collecting and preserving records that document MIT's history and the people who have been a part of that history. The collections include both published and unpublished materials in various formats.
