Food in the Library

26 May

Please visit my friend Jason Young’s blog, Food in the Library, home of all things culinary and bibliophilic. There, I’m guest-posting a five part series on the history of the disposable cup (adapted from a paper originally written for Bob Frost’s material culture course in the spring of 2007). It’s more about waste, disease, and public health than you might have ever thought a paper cup could tell you.
