In 1898 the Mary Hemenway estate offered their Boston School of Cookery to Framingham Normal School. Henry Whittemore, then Principal/President of Framingham accepted this offer. Framingham then had two academic programs, Education and Household Arts. Household Arts classes included Cooking, Dressmaking, Canning, Growing and Preserving Food, and Laundering. The two-year course of study for these students required classes in the sciences, including chemistry, physics, and biology, as well as dietetics.
