CORSON, Juliet, teacher of cookery, born in Boston, Massachusetts, 14 February, 1842. She was educated at Raymond and Brooklyn institutes, and in 1872-'3 was secretary of the New York free training-school for women. Since 1872 she has devoted herself to study and experiments on healthful and economical cookery, and dietetics. She founded the :New York school of cookery in 1876, and was its superintendent till 1883, when she was obliged to close it on account of failing health. Since that time she has been actively engaged, in the intervals of illness, in writing and in lecturing throughout the country. In Philadelphia, Montreal, and Oakland, California, her efforts have led to the teaching of cookery in the public schools. In 1881 the French consul-general at :New York applied officially to Miss Corson for her works and methods, for the purpose of adapting them to the needs of the French educational system. Her publications, besides many newspaper articles and pamphlets, include "Fifteen-Cent Dinners for Workingmen's Families," published by the author for free distribution to working-people earning $1.50, or less, a day (:New York, 1877); "Cooking Manual" (1878); "Cooking-School Text-Book and Housekeeper's Guide" (1878); "New Family Cook-Book" (1885); " Local American Cookery" (1885); "Practical American Cookery" (1886); "Diet for Invalids and Children" (1886); and "Family living on $500 a Year" (1886).
