House History

WALLS, Florence (1875-1948) graduated from Iowa State in 1909. She served the University on some capacity from 1906 to 1948. She was steward of the Margaret Hall Club in 1906, supervisor of the Faculty Club Food Service for several years, and ran the food service in the women's halls as a private concession from 1912 to 1943. During World War II, she supervised food service for the army personnel that were housed in the women's halls, and at that time became a member of the University staff where she remained until her death in 1948. She always recognized the beauty and value of fine food.
