Tim Page began collecting punch recipes in the early 1960s when he was a student at East Tennessee State University. His fraternity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, had been instructed to find a substitute for the alcoholic drinks they served at parties. Tim searched his school and local libraries, but was disappointed to find that no books on punches existed. However, a fraternity brother saved the day by suggesting they utilize a punch that was a specialty of his family’s cook. From that day, Tim made it his duty to collect punch recipes from ambassadors, dignitaries, restaurateurs, and caterers from around the world.
