Fond Farewell to Cookbook Collection Benefactor

May 29th, 2007

It is with regret that Steenbock Library notes the recent passing of Rheta McCutchin. For many years, the library enjoyed donations of cookbooks from Rheta’s personal collection. Her discerning eye and kind generosity enriched the Steenbock collection in size and breadth—particularly with titles documenting historical and regional trends in cooking.


Rheta McCutchin worked for UW-Madison during the course of thirty years, retiring from her position as Director of Housing Food Service in 1994.


The library expresses sympathy to family and friends.
