Equipment for Teaching of Domestic Science: The New Household Arts Building, Teachers College, Columbia


by Benjamin R. Andrews 1909

In a study of equipment for the teaching of domestic science, it seems appropriate to give a brief description of the new building which is being erected at Teachers College to shelter instruction in the household arts and sciences, and to refer to the new School of Household Arts which will occupy this building in September. This School of Household Arts was made possible by the gift in 1907 of nearly a half million dollars for a suitable building and equipment. It will continue and greatly amplify the instruction for many years carried on by the Departments of Domestic Art, Science, and Administration at Teachers College. In reality, however, the School is a new creation which proposes a school of collegiate rank, devoted to the household arts and sciences and intended primarily to train teachers of these subjects for public, technical and collegiate education; at the same time, the School will undertake to equip professional workers who may find service as managers of large domestic and institutional households and in allied fields, as hospital management, dietetics, interior decoration, laundry management, etc. As the engineering college has opened new professions for men, so it is believed this School will aid in establishing similar opportunities for women in the domain of the household, both domestic and institutional.
