Home Economics Class, Farmington State Normal School, 1927

Contributed by Mantor Library at UMF

In 1924, the Home Economics program was expanded from a two year to a four year program to comply with new federal standards under the Smith-Hughes Act. The Act also required students be provided with vocational or practical experience in homemaking.

In 1927, the F.S.N.S. program was moving into its next phase. The State of Maine had granted the Normal School authority to grant a Bachelors Degree to graduates of four year courses, including Home Ec. The incoming students in 1927 would be some of the first to earn the degree and would be the first to participate in the school's new nursery school project and the care of the first "Cottage Baby."

This photo is of a Home Economics class in 1927.
