Margaret Gilpin Reid: A Manitoba home economist goes to Chicago1
This essay offers a documentation of Margaret Gilpin Reid's early academic career and develops an analysis of how her home economics training may have influenced her career as an economist. It explores the links between home economics and economics in the early twentieth century when departments of home economics served as points of first entry to the academic world for many women, as sources of training in consumer economics and the operation of markets and as places of employment when women academics were not assiduously courted by regular departments of economics.
