In 1969, after five years of deliberation and planning, Cornell's College of Home Economics became the College of Human Ecology. Gwen Kay, a 2008 recipient of the college's fellowship in the history of home economics, examines how and why the new name came into being.

Kay is an associate professor of history at SUNY Oswego. She spoke at Cornell on March 4, 2009 in Mann Library.
