Ruth Griswold was an Indiana University nutrition faculty member from 1951 through 1966 in the Home Economics Department under the auspices of the College of Arts and Sciences. She believed in the notion of Home Economics which included nutrition, dietetics, human development and family studies, as well as textiles, clothing, consumer education, interior design, and home economics education. This scholarship, established in 1967, is a result of royalties from her nutrition textbook, “The Experimental Study of Foods,” copyright 1962.
