BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Professor of household economics and household management, New York State College of Home Economics at Cornell University.
Elizabeth Wiegand graduated from Cornell in 1938, worked several years as a home demonstration agent in county extension programs in New York State, and returned to Cornell, receiving her M.A. (1949) and Ph.D. (1953). Her doctoral dissertation on the use of time by New York State homemakers provided not only descriptive data but the basis for quantifying their work contributions with current data. She was involved in teaching and research at Michigan State University for three years following completion of her Ph.D. Upon her return to Cornell, she moved through the ranks of assistant professor (1957) to professor (1964) as an extension specialist in family economics and home management. She was named professor emerita in 1981.
