Persus Foster Eames Albee
Birth: May 30, 1836
Oxford County
Maine, USA
Death: Dec. 7, 1914
Worcester County
Massachusetts, USA

Businesswoman. She was known as the "First Avon Lady". In 1886 became the first saleswoman for the California Perfume Company, a business that eventually became the multi-billion dollar Avon Products, Incorporated. She started selling the company's products in 1886 door-to-door, and rose to become the chief of sales for the business. It was her idea to recruit women to go door-to-door selling the products, emulating her successful practice, which gave rise to the "Avon Lady".
