College News and Departmental Notes: Household Economics
by Departmental notes - 1922
The new course in Housing which was given for the first time last year is offering a study of social and economic factors in this field which is proving interesting to students. Special lectures have been given before the class this fall by Miss Blanche Gaery, executive secretary of the National Board of the Y. W. C. A., on housing for women, and by Mr. John J. Murphy, secretary of the Tenement House Committee of New York, on legal standards for the control of housing. The class has done field work through visiting the Russell Sage Foundation's experiment in suburban housing at Forest Hills, the Junior League Hotel for working girls, and similar examples of good housing. The conference on Housing for Girls held in New York in November afforded the class an unusual opportunity. This course on the housing problem will be offered again during the coming summer session.
