A research paper written by two Bryant students surfaced the remarkable wartime story of home economist Sylvia Brooklyn Denhoff, featured in this Providence Journal article.
The Journal article references some of Denhoff's efforts, but "Keeping America Fed and Healthy during World War II: Sylvia Brooklyn Denhoff: Home Economist," written by Madeleine Lux and Amanda Zagame '11, provides a richer, more detailed exploration of Denhoff's life. The research paper, produced as part of History Prof. Judy Barrett Litoff's course "U.S. Women and World War II," was based on interviews the students conducted with Denhoff at her home. The interviews were also filmed.
