Item or Series Title Copper Kettle - Martha Dixon Recipe Collection
Catalog Number 2014-05-001
Description This collection consists primarily of recipes distributed in relation to Martha Dixon's "Copper Kettle" or "Copper Kettle Kitchen" cooking show that aired on WJIM Channel 6 TV in Lansing from 1954 to 1979. Martha Dixon became the host in 1956 or 1957, following Winifred Olds. Itcan be assumed that viewers could sign up for a mailing list to receive these recipes, which were typically produced to coincide with each weekly broadcast.

For many years, a nearly complete weekly run of the recipes is included; in some such as 1975 only one or two weeks' worth is on file. Following the end of the broadcast in 1979, an annual holiday recipe list was sent until 1983, when the twentieth anniversary edition of "The Copper Kettle Cookbook" was published.
