Did an Uncredited Woman Invent Breakfast Cereal? Our Home on the Hillside, Dansville, New York.

Did an Uncredited Woman Invent Breakfast Cereal?

(Photo: Yale University Art Gallery/Public Domain) At Our Home on the Hillside, a 19th century sanitarium built in the tiny upstate hamlet of Dansville, New York, breakfast was at 8 a.m. It was only meal James Caleb Jackson, the head of Our Home, ate each day. It always included fruit but rarely vegetables, except in spring when he ate stalks of asparagus every day. He mostly ate breads and porridges, and above all other foods he worshipped flour made from wheat ground whole. For Jackson and his patients, “a desperate set” of people who had exhausted hope in mainstream medical care, meals were ideological affairs. Even as he became famous, a 19th century celebrity doctor, Jackson liked to emphasize how radical this idea was. When Jackson is mentioned at all today, it’s because he is credited with creating an entirely new way to eat wheat—as a cold breakfast cereal named Granula, invented in 1863.

In red pencil, the word “you” has been underlined. It forms part of the UFO ephemera collected by Butch, the barber and local UFO historian. Pine Bush appears to have embraced this very distinct moniker. How did you hear about Pine Bush, the “UFO Capital of New York”?

In an interview with Pipe Dream last May, noted filmmaker and Binghamton alumnus Marc Lawrence '81 described his upcoming rom-com, The Rewrite, as a “love letter to Binghamton.”

12 Reasons Why "The Rewrite" is the Ultimate Binghamton Movie

So for Binghamton students, the love interest of the film is not just the beautiful Marisa Tomei, but the beautiful city of Binghamton. Here's a list of reasons why seeing The Rewrite should be added to our DARS as a gen-ed requirement: 1. It's about finding love in unexpected places. Marc Lawrence met his wife at the vending machine outside of the Newcomb Reading Room in Bartle, and their romance inspired the film. 2. The only thing missing from this shot is the Pegasus statue. 3.

How many college students can say their drive to school is in a major motion picture? 4. Baxter's ears can be seen behind Tomei in this scene from the trailer. 5. . (...and maybe even eaten). 6. Because we could all use another Binghamton hoodie.
