Child Development

This 1939 bulletin by Ethel Waring consolidated a decade's worth of her scientific study of normative child development. Waring received her Ph.D. from Columbia University Teachers College in 1927, and served in the College of Home Economics from 1927 until 1955, making important contributions to the fields of child development and family relationships.
