Highlighted Databases: Nutrition Education

Gottesman Libraries


Did you know that Mary Swartz Rose, Professor of Household Arts from 1910 to 1923 and Professor of Nutrition from 1923 to 1940 at Teachers College, Columbia University, co-created the program in Nutrition at TC with Henry Sherman, a Professor of Chemistry at Columbia University over ninety years ago? In doing so, Rose became the first full-time person to develop a program in nutrition at an American university?
