Potato chip magnate. In 1926, this former nurse, began a successful California food company that eventually captured half of California’s potato chip market. She was an innovator in the food business. Her company was the first to package their chips in sealed bags, and became one of the first companies to put a freshness date on their packages. She sold the company in 1957 accepting six million dollars, which was three million dollars less than a previous offer, but she took the lesser amount in order to secure job security for her employees. The “Potato Chip Queen” was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
