Betty Crocker's 1957 Cookbook for Boys and Girls

sadie | Sep 18, 201708:39 AM

Hi there, hounds! I'm writing a piece on this iconic cookbook (I grew up with my mom's original copy) which made such a strong impression on me as a budding cook. The Drum Cake! The "Mother" Cake!

I'd love to hear any memories or feelings, but what I'm *really* interested in is tracking down any of the panel of 12 "home testers" - the kids who tested and commented on the recipes throughout the book. I assume most of them must have had parents somehow affiliated with General Mills or Wiley. They were always my idols growing up! Any leads would be so appreciated!
