Christine Frederick was really one of the first well-known Domestic Engineers, the Martha Stewart of her time. Eventually she encountered a disconnection with her fellow housewives as she advocated brand loyalty and sided more with corporations. Truly a fascinating lady though, she had some great ideas!

Interesting! I need to look into Christine Frederick more. Thanks for letting me know.

This book has been a great insight into the everyday housework of the vintage woman - it's helped me to understand better how to simplify my own schedule and make my home more functional and less frivolous...even the laundry ; ) Thanx for posting about this!
