Candy Maker. Born Mary Wiseman on Howe Island in Ontario, Canada, she developed her chocolate candy recipes while helping run her husband's hotel on nearby Tremont Island. Following her husband's death in 1919, she moved with her son Charles to California and settled in Los Angeles. Inspired by his mother's candy, Charles opened the first See's Candies store in 1921. With the store designed to resemble her kitchen, Mary See's portrait became the symbol of the company's quality and can be found in every See's store and on See's candy boxes.
