Call for Menu Donations
As a part of its foodways initiative, Special Collections is seeking to build a collection of Arkansas menus. While we are especially seeking older menus, recent ones will be welcomed too. We are looking for:
• Restaurant menus
• Menus for special events
• Menus for family meals, such as descriptions of meals in handwritten letters

If you wish to donate a menu, please mail it to or contact Timothy G. Nutt, Assistant Department Head and Manuscripts Librarian, University of Arkansas Libraries, Special Collections Department, 365 N. McIlroy Avenue, Fayetteville, AR. 72701, phone: 479-575-8443, e-mail: [email protected].
