*The Königsberg Foodstuffs Database is the work of Molly Taylor-Poleskey and Jason Heppler while part of Stanford University’s Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis from 2014-2016. Sage Shuster revived the database with funds from Middle Tennessee State University’s Public History Program in 2021. Taylor-Poleskey collected and translated the data from the Geheimes Staatsarchiv Preußischer Kulturbesitz (GStA PK) Ostpreussische Folianten 13091-13122 with a 2011-2012 Graduate Research Fellowship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
