Betty Bigner

This is a collection of recipes that I obtained from an estate in Shreveport, Louisiana.   This is a very diverse collection hand-written, newspaper clippings, copied, and promotional recipes.   

It appears that this is the collection of Betty Bigner of Shreveport.  From my research, Betty was an assistant editor for the newspaper in Shreveport - possibly the "Woman's Page Editor" in the sixties and seventies.  Her background with the newspaper explains why there are several entire newspaper stories included in her collection, in addition to the many recipes from newspaper clippings.  From the collection, one must assume that entertained a fair amount.   This is a great collection from Louisiana, I hope you enjoy browsing it as much as I have recoding the collection.
