The following Guild history was compiled and edited by the late Mary Childs and Pat Strickland in 1985.

The late Esther Douty compiled our first history in 1975, "It All Started with the Lemon Pie," and we believe she would have been pleased with a revised edition, for the Guild meant a great deal to her. We have used much of her information, and some of her articles appear again, for they are too good to lose.
