Domestic Science class, Farmington, ca. 1917

Contributed by Mantor Library at UMF

A Normal School student gives a recitation as teacher Emma Polackawich and classmates look on.

Domestic Science courses were part of the Household Arts program (later known as Home Economics), which began in 1911 at F.S.N.S.

By 1915, the focus of the cookery curriculum was on meal preparation and included instruction in table service and menu making.

Students were also required to dress in white for cookery lessons, had to wear plain tailored skirts and plain tailored shirtwaists with 3/4 sleeves and soft or stiff turn-over collars, and had to have two plain gored aprons with bib and pockets and two plain white linen towels.
