NW Okie's Ramblins
If you are located in the Kansas and Oklahoma area where you can subscribe, receive the Prairie Connection newspaper put out by the Balmer Fund and Rosalea Hostetler, of Harper, Kansas, you might want to check out a new feature that we will be submitting to the Prairie Connection. Look for NW Okie's feature Home Comfort Cookbook Hints and the logo pictured on the left, in the future issues of the Prairie Connection.
I found this Home Comfort Cookbook, which dates back to the Model B Wrought Iron Range around 1934, at a garage sale a few years back. The cookbooks were published by Culver Company with no copyright notice inside and given away free with each Wrought Iron Range that were made back in the mid-1890s through the Depression era. The three Culver brothers (Henry, William and Lucius Culver) established the Culver Company of St. Louis, Missouri in 1864.
The three brothers died around the turn of the century, but their sons and grandsons took over the Culver business and philanthropies (including the Culver Military Academy for boys between the ages of 10-18, which was established in 1894).
You can read more about the Culver brothers and history of the Wrought Iron Range & Culver Company established by the Culver brothers in the upcoming Prairie Connection this Summer.
