The story of the transformation of home economics over the past hundred years is a fascinating one. It involves changing ideas about household work, domestic labor, family structure, and gender roles. This digital collection from the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections brings together photographs and ephemera illustrating aspects of this change at the institution's own School of Human Ecology. Visitors can use the subject groupings here to get started, which include Buildings and Classrooms, Administrators, and Student Extracurricular Activities. The Practice Cottage/Home Management House area is especially fascinating as it chronicles the evolution of the Practice Cottage, where students lived temporarily and practiced their home management skills before receiving their degrees.
