Cookbook storage at Museum

New cookbook storage at the museum is perfect although somewhat chilly if the freezer door is open nearby.
Interesting that the walk-in freezer stores old film that needs to be kept cold. Archivist Linda Whitaker explained why this freezer is so important using words like storage of "explosive vulnerable film" and "vintage movie film negatives" and "nitrate negatives." After Linda's explanation and looking up nitrate negatives on Wikipedia, the freezer makes a lot of sense!
Thanks to Linda for creating this space for Tastes & Treasures, A Storytelling Cookbook of Historic Arizona.

Ruth McLeod felt the chilling effects of the walk-in freezer.
