Alberta Home Economics Association. Calgary Branch fonds
2 m of textual records
The Alberta Home Economics Association, Calgary Branch, was first organized as the Calgary Home Economics Association in 1934 with nineteen charter members and Catherine Gossip as first president. In 1935, the Calgary HEA and Edmonton HEA (organized in 1923) joined forces to create a provincial body, the Alberta Home Economics Association. The Calgary association has also been called the Calgary and District Home Economics Association. The goals of the provincial body and its local affiliates are similar: establishment and promotion of educational facilities and professional standards among home economists; increased public awareness through publications, lectures, workshops, etc.; and active involvement of association members in studying and responding to issues affecting the well-being of Albertans.
