Hattie Carnegie, circa mid-1900s

She couldn't sew or cut a pattern herself, yet Hattie Carnegie's sense of style and taste sparked her rise from humble beginnings as a Jewish immigrant to the creator of a fashion empire around a distinctly "American" look. This photo was taken during the mid-1900s.

Institution: Library of Congress.
