Fun & Interesting Facts About the Author
Mary's first business endeavor began at the age of eleven when she started working as a newspaper delivery girl for The Chicago Tribune. Since the canvas bag was too heavy for her to carry when filled with newspapers her father built her a cart made of wood and an old canvas Army duffle bag. With her new capacity to carry newspapers more easily, Mary expanded her newspaper delivery area to three territories. Occasionally, on Sundays when the papers were extra heavy or the number was increased by Sunday-only customers, Mary paid her brother 25 cents to help her with her route for the day.
