Voice of America

Voice of America (VOA), an organization promoting democracy and American values abroad, provided home economists with a way to spread their message internationally. In this photograph, Professor Hazel Hauck (far right) is discussing international home economics efforts in southeast Asia. In 1947, VOA also produced "A College of Home Economics," a film that featured the New York State College of Home Economics as a model for women's higher education.
