Summary

Lillian Moller Gilbreth (1878-1972) earned a Ph.D. in psychology from Brown University but is best known, along with her husband Frank Bunker Gilbreth, for revolutionizing management techniques. In "Cheaper by the Dozen" (1948), their children lovingly described life in the unusually "efficient" Gilbreth family. This photograph was distributed during the Great Depression when Lillian Gilbreth chaired the Women's Division of the President's Emergency Committee for Employment, working on how "to assist needy families in buying health protection with their food money."
