Home Economics class with nurse, Farmington State Normal School, ca. 1930

Contributed by Mantor Library at UMF


Practical experience was an important part of the Home Economics curriculum. Students learned about child care, including infants. The school nurse was a key part of providing students with these skills. This photo shows a group of students learning the proper way to bathe a "baby" under the watchful eye of Nurse Ingeborg Johansen, who was the school nurse from 1928 to 1945.
