Gebhardt Mexican Foods Company Collection: A Virtual Exhibit

August 14, 2014

In addition to the Mexican Cookbook Collection, UTSA Libraries Special Collections is home to archival records from several local food processing companies. One of the most significant of these collections is the Gebhardt Mexican Foods Company Records. First established in 1896 when German immigrant Willie Gebhardt registered the Eagle Brand Chili Powder trademark, his company was instrumental in popularizing Mexican convenience food. Over time, Gebhardt expanded its product line to include canned chili, beans, tamales, and more.
