Doris Mitchell was born on August 21, 1903 in Tecumseh, Michigan. When she was eight, her family moved to New York, and then to Ithaca when Doris was 15. Doris went to Cornell intending to become a librarian, but decided instead to study home economics. She graduated in the first class of the College of Home Economics in 1925. Doris taught home economics at a public school in Pennsylvania for six years before she decided to come back to Cornell for her Masters degree in home economics. From there Doris taught at three other public middle and high schools, the last of which was in Cortland where Doris taught until she retired in 1962. Doris is now 97 years old and a resident of Oak Hill Manor Nursing Home in Ithaca.
