Alice Biester (1890-1969) received her education in nutrition at the University of Illinois, earning an AB (1912) and an AM (1913). Her research interests focused on the impact of proper nutrition on children, and the ways in which nutrients react to cooking and/or processing of foods. She joined the Home Economics faculty at Purdue in 1913 and served briefly as the acting head of the department before her resignation in 1915. From there, she joined the faculty at the University of Minnesota as a Professor in Nutrition. She retired from Minnesota in 1955.
