Abstract

The South Dakota Association of Family and Consumer Sciences is an organization that improves and strengthens education and science in home economics, and establishes and improves standards of service and scientific research in home economics. Composed of newsletters, meeting minutes, and programs for the Association. Information about some influential members is also included.

Historical Note

The South Dakota Home Economics Association was established in November 1913. Dean Parish of the South Dakota Education Association asked Eva Dawes, the first home economics instructor at the University of South Dakota, to organize the home economics teachers across the state. The first meeting was held in Sioux Falls in November of 1913. Sixteen teachers attended. Eva Dawes was the first president, a position she held for 3 years.

The name was changed name to South Dakota Association of Family and Consumer Sciences in 1994. This came about due to a nation-wide survey conducted by the American Home Economics Association. This survey recommended that the name of the profession called Home Economics be changed to Family and Consumer Sciences.

The purpose of this organization is to improve and strengthen education and science in home economics, and establish and improve standards of service and scientific research in home economics. The Association sponsors seminars, debates, symposia, and conferences. It disseminates policy for professional guidance at the national and international levels concerning in home economics, and identifies and studies social, economic and psychological changes having implications for home economics programs. The group encourages and promotes a full and fair exposition of facts involving legislation affecting home economics and the improvement of home and family life. Finally, the Association promotes liaison and other cooperative professional activities with groups having related concerns in behalf of the public interest in home economics.

This organization underwent several names changes over the years. The decision was made by the processor to arrange this material the name that the organization held at the time. This resulted in the collection being arranged into even series:

The newsletters cover the years 1941–1999. These include minutes from meetings, up-coming events, scholarships awarded, officers elected, honorary memberships granted, and information on programs sponsored by the Association.
