(January 14, 1841 - June 18, 1897)
Juliet Corson worked as a librarian and later wrote for the New York Leader and the National Quarterly Review.
In 1873, she started working as secretary for a Women's school, and soon started cooking classes with a trained chef to demonstrate techniques. This led her to start the New York Cooking School in 1876, and to write a 'Cooking Manual' in 1877 and 'Twenty-five Cent Dinners for Families of Six' (1878).
During the coming years lectured, and wrote many pamphlets, articles and additional books on cooking, including 'Miss Corson's Practical American Cookery' (1886). She ran the New York State Cooking School exhibit at the 1893 ‘World Columbian Exposition’ in Chicago.
