Milliner and dressmaker

Alice married past her youth and had no children. As a young woman, she supported herself as a hat maker. When hats went out of fashion, she turned to dressmaking. Her legend was that, if a woman could find a picture of the fanciest gown from Paris and bring the picture to Alice, Alice could make the dress for the woman. When Alice finally married, she married a Chicago newspaper man who drank more than a bit of alcohol, on more than an occasional basis. Alice kept sewing and didn't depend on her husband for support. She lived in a ground level apartment, in a neighborhood near the University of Chicago, amidst her boxes of fabric and buttons and thread.

Her favorite line:
"I'd rather be fat than wrinkled!"

Sister of Emma Jane, Carrie, Linnie Loretta, Anna, Harrison Ray, Arthur J., Bernice, and Bertram.

Wife of Fred Allen HUBBARD (1869-1929); married September 29, 1920, in Chicago, Illinois, before a judge serving in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois.
