"What's Cooking" debuted in 2011 as one of the National Archives' most popular exhibits, generating excitement and dialog among visitors and in the media. The exhibit's eclectic records were all produced in the course of Government efforts to ensure that Americans enjoy an ample, safe, and nutritious diet. Spanning the Revolutionary War to the late 1900s, the letters, photographs, pamphlets, posters, films, and radio programs echo many of our current concerns about Government's role in the health and safety of our food supply. The exhibit is a winning combination of nostalgia, humor, and intriguing insights about the history of the government that helped our diet. The exhibition is supplemented with artifacts and archives from the Nixon administration holdings. Location: Rose Hills Foundation Gallery.
