A collection of photographs from the Gibson sister’s time at the Kansas State Manual Training Normal School, including Helen and Evva and their friends.
Helen C. Gibson Dubois (1894-1978) and Evva Louise Gibson (1896-1980) were sisters who both attended the Kansas State Manual Training Normal School (now Pittsburg State University). Evva received her first bachelor’s degree in 1918. She received a second in 1922, and a master’s degree in 1925, both from Columbia University in New York. She returned to Pittsburg in 1923 as an assistant professor at the college. In 1947, she became head of the Home Economics Department, serving until 1961, a total of 38 years of service. The E. Louise Gibson Dining Hall on the campus was named after her. Helen Gibson married Charles R. Dubois (1886-1942) and they lived in Pittsburg.
