Happy National S’mores Day! Recipes for S’mores started popping up in papers around the 1930s. Back then they were often associated with scouting programs and summer hikes, and called other things like “graham cracker sandwiches” or the name from which the term S’more is derived, “Some Mores.”

In honor of such an auspicious occasion, here are a couple S’mores-related clippings from those early days of ooey-gooey goodness.
