Biographical Note

The Arkansas Home Demonstration Agents Association, the forerunner of the Arkansas Association of Extension Home Economists (AAEHE), was organized on September 5, 1940 in the Administration Building of State Teacher's College at Conway, Arkansas. Right from the beginning, the Association decided to adopt the Program of Work of the National Home Demonstration Agents Association and coordinate the state program with that of the national. Fourteen committees, overseeing the organizational matters, were set up in 1942. Most of them are still active. The AAEHE plays an active role in the improvement of family and community life through various programs, meetings, and activities.
