Ellen Swallow Richards (1842-1911)


I am really astonished at the amount of work we do. The only trouble here, they wont [sic] let us study enough. I think few men in college do as much as we do here.

As an Ellen Swallow Richards researcher and biographer, I would suggest that you have selected an interesting quote. This women went on after saying this to become the first woman ever to enter MIT, graduate and then become an instructor at MIT. She accomplished an amazing amount during her lifetime, including the founding of Home Economics nearly 100 years ago.
