[picture]Mary S. Rose Collection
Professor Mary Swartz Rose was a Professor of Household Arts from 1910 to 1923 and a Professor of Nutrition from 1923 to 1940 at Teachers College, Columbia University. She co-created the program in Nutrition at TC with Henry Sherman, a Professor of Chemistry at Columbia University over ninety years ago. In doing so, Rose became the first full-time person to develop a program in nutrition at an American university.

Rose conducted extensive research on nutrition and dietetics. She designed the first nutrition laboratory devoted solely to training students in this field. In that laboratory, Rose trained others in her life's work. Some of her studies involved bringing this knowledge to the elementary schools.

Outside of the College, Rose was a founder of the American Institute of Nutrition and a member of the Technical Commission on Nutrition of the Health Organization of the League of Nations. Through these organizations she influenced the recommendations for developing the first dietary standards approved by scientists.
