Schwieder was a long time member of the Iowa State History Department, beginning her teaching career at ISU in 1966. She was known as the “Dean of Iowa History.” Her 1996 nomination for University Professor said she “singlehandedly rejuvenated serious study of Iowa both in the academic and public arenas.”
