A Little About Janet Lowe Cameron

In the last week or so, we’ve had several students here to ask about and work with the collection. The Janet Lowe Cameron Scholarships have been given out for the year and students are starting/continuing their research. Not surprisingly, this has got me thinking about Janet Cameron and her publications. Here in Special Collections, we have a small manuscript collection containing information about her and copies of many of her publications. This week, I’ve scanned a few front pages to share.


If you’d like to know more about Janet Cameron, you can read some in the finding aid for her collection in Special Collections. You may also want to visit us, since there’s more information in the collection itself, some of which is online here (and undoubtedly we could find more in our University history materials, too!). And there’s an article in the 2001 Culinary Thymes about her. I’m also planning to write a post or two about her in the future. 🙂

I know some of our readers may have known Janet Cameron. If you’d like to share something about her, please do so in the comments!
