Named for Elizabeth Hoyt a member of the Iowa State faculty for 55 years. She also held a research position with the National Industrial Conference Board, where she compiled a cost of living index in 1915, which later developed into the present Consumer Price Index. Her career was best known for a lifetime of devotion to humanitarian economics. Her teaching was a pioneering effort in the new field of consumer economics. Her research on levels and standards-of-living benefited people of many cultures in Africa, Central America and the United States. Hoyt created the Elizabeth E. Hoyt Fellowship Fund at Iowa State University, one of the largest gifts from a faculty member. The gift was designated for funding international work of Iowa State University and particularly to help needy students from foreign countries study here.
