cake in the library?!

cake-1The Huntington Library in San Marino, CA has decided to attempt to preserve two pieces of wedding cake found in the papers of Edwin Carpenter. The pieces date from 1876 and 1915 and have “little research value.” Nevertheless, the staff have found themselves reluctant to discard cake. (I’m with ya, Huntington Library.) Thanks, Steve Fisher!
