Grace Fraser

Grace Fraser continues to serve on the Board of Trustees at the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum and Educational Center where an important collection was acquired this year. She also prepares and serves Native foods for hundreds at the annual Harvest Moon Festival. The proceeds from her cookbook on Native feasts, published last year, support the educational mission of the Museum. She spearheaded a membership drive for a local historical society. The number of members increased twelve-fold and this puts the organization in the running for a large(25k)private grant. The Food Issues course is still very popular and the Bread Lab (all students make bread from scratch) has taken on a life of its own.

Dr. Fraser enjoys hearing from former students like Nikki Morin Weisberg, Liz Wirkkala, Katlyn Williams, Ben Gerber and Stefanie Hynds.
