Biographical or Historical Information

In 1913 the department of “Domestic Science,” what would later be called Home Economics, was started at Eastern Illinois State Normal School. Eventually as the school expanded as did its degree granting offerings. In 1921 a four-year degree was obtainable and the school's name changed to Eastern Illinois State Teacher's College. Under the administration of President Robert Guy Buzzard faculty were added to the staff as the student population grew.
