For the Al: Mildred Day » des.m1007famous-page1

For Mildred Day profile in Sept. 30, 2012 Famous Iowans column. Photo from the 1933 Pillsbury cookbook. In that photo, Mildred is on the left. The woman in the oval photo is named in the text there (Mary Ellis Ames, I think) and was sort of a mythical Betty Crocker character. I hope you can use this photo as it shows the young, working Mildred in a kitchen. The family was kind to let us use it. (Special to the Register)
