So they were like, really really good waitresses? So good they "transformed the west"? Wow. What about the mule skinners and soda jerks who also transformed the west?

My mother-in-law, Maria Dolores Martinez Madrid worked at as a Harvey Girl in her teens and early adulthood, as an Elevator Operator. Other members of her family also worked as Harvey Girls. I don't know if you have any interest at this point beyond what you have written, but she lives in Santa Fe, at 415 Kathryn Place, 505-982-6684. She and the other family members worked at La Fonda Hotel. She met her husband, Demetrio Madrid at La Fonda. He also worked there, in what capacity I don't know?
