Hotel Onondaga, Syracuse 1946
The Onondaga Hotel in Syracuse in the state of New York opened its doors in 1910. A handsome establishment, it had a two-story atrium, a ballroom and several restaurants and grew to accommodate 500 rooms, becoming the largest hotel outside the city of New York. This 1946 menu is from the hotel’s Travel Room where guests could dine on cuisines from around the world. This is nicely illustrated on the front cover with a giant wooden globe and glasses and dishes balanced on the globe’s wooden frame. Among the guests who stayed at the Onondaga: Theodore Roosevelt, Herbert Hoover, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart and Babe Ruth. The Onondaga hotel was named for one of the original five constituent nations of the Iroquois who were a historically powerful northeast Native American confederacy. They were known during the colonial years to the French as the Iroquois League, and later as the Iroquois Confederacy, and to the English as the Five Nations, comprising the Mohawk, Onondaga, Oneida, Cayuga, and Seneca. After 1722, they accepted the Tuscarora people from the Southeast into their confederacy and became known as the Six Nations.
