Food writer Prudence Penny
I have been researching syndicated food writer Prudence Penny who penned a column in the women's pages of the Hearst newspapers beginning after World War I. (It was a pen name for several writers - at least one was a man.)
Above is a photo of one of the writers of the Prudence Penny columns. It was taken in Seattle in 1939. It can be found on this blog.
This blog post refers to a Prudence located in L.A.
This blog includes several great references to the history of Prudence Penny.
