Home Economics Department,, 1967-1976


  • 1967-1976

Scope and Contents

Dean Foster and Acting Dean Brownlee; (very little of Dean Cobb).

Douglass College's connection with Rutgers and its funding was based on Rutgers' Land Grant College status and the inclusion of Home Economics in DC's curriculum.

Folder Contents include correspondence, memoranda, budget memoranda, program proposals. Documents reveal several functions of the Dean - intervening in squabbles between departments, in this case Home Ec and Psychology, placating disgruntled parents, and appearing in person for various occasions.

Noteworthy is a confidential memorandum by Dean Foster to Dean Torrey, in which she suggests that Home Ec not be emphasized at DC.
