About this collection
The Junior League of Baton Rouge was established in 1932 and has a history of service to children and their families in the areas of education, health, and arts and cultural education. Since it's original publication in 1959, the best selling cookbook River Road Recipes has sold over two million copies and raised over a million dollars to fund projects in the Baton Rouge area. The JLBR has been instrumental in establishing the Baton Rouge Speech and Hearing Foundation, the Louisiana Arts and Sciences Museum and the Nearly-Nu resale shop. To this day the League continues it's philanthropic mission.
