1966 MARTH WASHI GTO TEA
Miss Edna Weare, seated, was founder of Martha Washington Tea.
On February 22, the silver anniversary ofthe Martha
Washington Silver Tea was observed in the Student
Union. It was sponsored by the Home Economics Club.
Miss Edna Weare, guest of honor at the silver tea,
was the sponsor of the first Martha Washington tea.
She was also the home economics advisor the year the
trip to the East was made.
The practice originated from a 1940 trip several
Peru Coeds made to a home economics convention in
the East. During this trip, the girls visited Mount
Vernon and copied a recipe, '1How to Make a Great
Cake." The recipe was found in a letter from Martha
Custis to her grandmother, Martha Washington. It
calls for five pounds of sugar and 40 eggs, among other
Cakes made from this recipe have been served an-
nually for the tea since its beginning in 1941, except
for one year during World War I1.
