Dinner Invitation

A dinner was held in honor of the 1925 change from the School of Home Economics to the College of Home Economics, and Martha Van Rensselaer was recognized by the state for her accomplishments. The administrative structure of the college did not change, as the dean continued to be of the College of Agriculture. It would be sixteen years later before the College of Home Economics had its own dean.
