Hazel Anona Hake Alderman
Birth: Dec. 28, 1910
Yakima County
Washington, USA
Death: Mar. 17, 1989
Multnomah County
Oregon, USA

Hazel was the daughter of Ernest Rexford and Nikolina "Lena" (Sigurdson) Hake. She grew up in Toppenish, Washington attending high school and working at the local library where she became head librarian. In 1937 she married Henry Haines "Hank" Alderman. Hank was a journalist and an executive with the Bonneville Power Administration. In 1954 he founded Ruralite Services which publishes a monthly magazine distributed to members of electric cooperatives throughout the Northwest and Alaska.

Hazel helped edit her husband's magazine for many years and she also wrote a regular column "At Home with Mary Frances Cook" which offered helpful hints and recipes to housewives. The name was taken from Hank Alderman's Aunt Mary Frances Scott, older sister of Abigail Scott Duniway and wife of Amos Cook who, as one of the "men of Champoeg," voted to make the Oregon country part of the United States. Hazel also edited a monthly safety magazine published by Ruralite Services called "Greenlite" which was provided to employees of electric cooperatives.

Hazel and Hank lived in Ladd's Addition in Portland and later moved to Lake Oswego. They had two children: Henry Haines III and James M.K.
