Abstract

The cataloging of a collection of French candy wrappers in the Winterthur Library's Joseph Downs Collection of Manuscripts and Printed Ephemera was completed under the auspices of a semester-long graduate-level connoisseurship independent study. The project involved cataloging the collection and preparing a finding aid for a library and museum whose collection focuses on books, documents, ephemera, and objects associated with American material life. Completing the project within this context posed several challenges. This article describes the project's scope, explains the author's cataloging methodology for this unique collection, describes the history of candy and candy wrappers, notes the relevant resources available in the United States, and contextualizes how this collection of French printed ephemera is technically and visually relevant to American and European popular visual culture of the same period.
