Mary Swartz Rose (October 31, 1874 – February 1, 1941) was an influential American laboratory scientist and educator in the fields of nutrition and dietetics. A prominent American nutritionist during the first half of the 20th century at Columbia University Teachers College in New York City, Rose authored several influential textbooks, the Laboratory Handbook for Dietetics, first published in 1912, and three editions of The Foundations of Nutrition, as well as books for the general public, such as Feeding the Family in 1916. Rose co-founded the American Institute of Nutrition and served as its fifth president in 1937-1938. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
