MacDougall, Alice Foote  
Alice Foote MacDougall: The Autobiography of a Business Woman
 Picture
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company, 1928 Boston, MA.
Book. Book condition: Good. Poor. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "The author of this book has been the subject of much writing in newspapers and magazines. Her restaurants in New York, which have attained a popularity and reputation for their distinctive contribution to the life of the city, bespeak a personality they could not have come into being without the forming and directing power of a positive, artistic, and intelligent individual force. In each of them a bit of Southern Europe seems to have been transplanted, with no sense of violence in the process, where one would least expect it - in the teeming streets of New York and always to the satisfaction of the appetite for beauty as well as for physical refreshment. The story of Mrs. MacDougall's business life, its struggles and success, can hardly be duplicated outside the pages of fiction. Reared in circumstances of ease, she found herself confronted at forty with the necessity of providing entirely for herself and her three young children. She determined to establish a business in coffee and, working against overwhelming odds, succeeded within a few years in laying modest but solid foundations in downtown New York. Later she started a Coffee Room in the Grand Central Station; then an ambitious restaurant in Forty-third Street; and now one for which she has just signed a lease of one million dollars. As the record of a business success, her narrative is a remarkable document. But it is much more, for it is an autobiography of vital suggestion to the multitude of women engaged in the economic struggle." Illustrated. 205 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. Dust jacket is present, but badly torn; thus POOR condition.
