Arkansas Extension Homemakers Council

Originally known as the Home Demonstration Clubs, the Arkansas Extension Homemakers Council (AEHC) was established in 1912. These groups traveled throughout the state to educate Arkansans about growing, cooking, and preserving food. AEHC has since broadened its activities to teach families and communities about a wide range of issues, including gerontology, personal finance, and voter education. To commemorate "100 years of EHC," members in each county have recorded, transcribed, and edited interviews with current or past Extension Homemakers members and personnel. AEHC has donated this collection of interviews to the David and Barbara Pryor Center for Arkansas Oral and Visual History.
