Biographical Note

Marguerite was born on January 1, 1890, in Bloomington, Illinois. Her father was John P. Mallon, a statistician for the Chicago and Eastern Railroad, and her mother was an organist and teacher of piano. Marguerite went through public schools in Chicago before earning her Bachelor of Science degree from the Institute of Technology, Chicago, in 1915. She continued her studies at the University of Chicago, earning a M.S. in 1916 and a Ph.D. in 1926 in nutrition. Marguerite came to Purdue in 1918 as an instructor in Foods and Nutrition. She became an assistant professor in 1920 and was promoted to associate professor in 1934. She resigned from Purdue in 1936 after accepting a position as an assistant professor in home economics at the University of California, Los Angeles. Through her research on nutrition, Mallon addressed issues related to calcium and its retention in the body. She wrote numerous academic articles on the subject, many of which were printed in publications such as Biological Chemistry, Journal of Home Economics, Journal of the American Dietetic Association, and others. Mallon passed away in 1968.
