Home supervisors were basically home economists who helped women learn better ways to keep the family’s accounts as well as other money-saving and food preservation skills. Picture here, with a supervisor assigned to the Irwinville Farms Project are John Bennett (l.) and Mrs. J. B. (Ethel) Pope.

  1. Do you have any image numbers for the John Vachon photos of the home supervisor and the Ethel Pope images. I am working on a book and this would be a great help. We will provide a credit for you and your site. Thanks.
