You Meet Such Interesting People by Bess Whitehead Scott

Book Description

At the age of twenty-five, Bess Whitehead Scott became the first woman reporter for the city desk of the "Houston Post". The year was 1915.Born near Blanket, Texas, in 1890, Scott grew up on a small farm held together by her widowed mother and eight brothers and sisters. She graduated from Baylor University and taught school briefly before she persuaded the "Post" editors to give her a chance. Then, even before the filming of the silent movie classic, "Birth of a Nation", she went to the little film colony called Hollywood, to try her hand at writing "scenarios."Bess Scott encountered many individuals who made a deep impression on her. Clark Gable and Lyndon Johnson were her friends; her best friend, Lila Danforth, was always there during rough times. The talents and stamina of Bess Scott and her mother in fighting rural and urban hardships exemplify a century of women's progress and highlight the roles played by the "interesting" people strung along the thread of their lives.
