The Iowa Homemaker

Table of Contents

Editor's Note: Elizabeth Storm Ferguson is the woman greatly responsible for the first issue of the Iowa Homemaker. She and her staff created Volume 1, Number 1 of the magazine in 1921. That same year she was graduated from Iowa State, receiving her degree in Home Economics and Agriculture. Her courses had included many electives in English and journalism. From 1921-1923, Elizabeth Storm worked with the Extension Service of Iowa State. In 1923, she married Fred E. Ferguson (ISC '22), publications editor for the Division of Agriculture and the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station. An Ames resident since that time, Mrs. Ferguson is interested in "homemaking, people, cooking, gardening, and housework, in that order." A little free-lance writing through the years has kept her in practice; and now she is managing editor for publications of the National Association for Nursery Education, women's editor for the Iowa Rural Electric News and Tractor Farming, and publicity chairman for the Iowa Home Economics Association.
