Cook Wanted - 1921
It doesn‘t pay much, but...
In October 1921, Wayne Cartledge, general manager of La Harmonia Company, wrote the following letter to Mr. Alex Ebner in El Paso. Mr. Ebner apparently had placed a “cook position wanted” ad in the El Paso Times.
As far as can be determined, Mr. Ebner did not apply for the job.
Letter from Wayne Cartledge Collection, Archives of the Big Bend at Sul Ross University. Researched and compiled by park volunteer Bob Wirt.
Did You Know?
The Harte Ranch section of the North Rosillos Mountains was added to Big Bend National Park in 1987. Property owners Houston H. Harte and Edward H. Harte donated the 67,000 acre ranch to the Texas Nature Conservancy in 1985 with the understanding that it would eventually become part of the park.
