Scope and Content

In 1951, as part of a national nutrition survey, the Home Economics Department, with Kathleen Warnick as principal investigator, collected data from high school students in three communities, Boise, Nampa, and Coeur d'Alene. In 1983 Karen Davis of the Home Economics Research Department obtained the data from Mrs. Warnick and made an unsuccessful attempt to locate the students in order to do a follow up study.

These papers contain the original data gathered by Kathleen Warnick and her associates on the nutrition of high school students, documenting such things as meal patterns, diet histories, nutrient intake, servings of food eaten, and soup consumption, as well as several published reports using the data collected. Also included is Karen Davis' correspondence with the high schools in an attempt to locate the students, and her proposals for several grants.

All material retains the original folder headings and physical arrangement. Published material, other than that directly related to the study, was removed for review by subject librarians. Boxes 2 and 3 consist of oversize charts shelved flat.
