Description

Born in 1892 in Brattleboro, Vermont, Evelyn "Bussie" Emerson studied Household Economics at Simmons, where she was president of the Vermont Club and, according to her senior yearbook entry, “an advocate of Suffrage” with “a keen interest in social work and Socialism.”

Emerson graduated in 1917 and worked first as a high school Domestic Science teacher and then as a dietician at the Lincoln Settlement House in Boston’s South End. She received a master’s degree from the Columbia Teachers College in 1938, and was a member of the American Association of University Women from 1946 until her death in 1969.
