Home Bureau Creed

Home Bureaus were established across New York State in the early twentieth century in order to provide new information on household economics and management. This statement of ideals, authored by home economics professor Ruby Green Smith and designed by Bristow Adams, was intended to be a decorative piece that hung in homes across the country. Over 500,000 copies were printed and distributed nationwide.
