Margaret Wylie's Obituary

Margaret Wylie's 1964 obituary showed the breadth of activities in which many home economist educators participated. Like many women in the field, she belonged to a number of professional organizations that promoted high standards, certification, and professional conduct within home economics' sub-disciplines. As a Family Studies professor at Cornell, Wylie herself was a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Psychological Association, the American Home Economics Association, and the International Council of Women Psychologists. She also belonged to honors societies, including Phi Beta Kappa, Sigma Ki, and Sigma Delta Epsilon, which extended membership to those who had made significant advancements within the field.
