1946: The Year in Menus

1946. It was the year a small school named the New Haven
Restaurant Institute was founded to train returning World War II
veterans. It was the year 50 students and 3 faculty members
first gathered in a small storefront building under the leadership
of Frances Roth and Katharine Angell.   It was the year the CIA
established itself as the “culinary center of the nation.” It was
the year that set the rest in motion.  The menus are from the
CIA Menu Collection.
