Ruth Graves Wakefield's Toll House, in Whitman, Massachusetts, is pictured on a postcard. After graduating from the Normal School's Department of Household Arts in 1924, Ruth Graves Wakefield worked as a dietician and food lecturer. In 1930, she published Ruth Wakefield's Recipes: Tried and True, which went through 39 printings. One of her recipes was for the tollhouse chocolate crunch cookie, named for the Toll House Inn, a restaurant and boarding house she owned with her husband, Ken Wakefield. To this day, Nestl├⌐ prints both her recipe and the Toll House story on the back of its chocolate chip packages. In 1969, she donated her cookbook collection to the college.
