Dear Miss Tingle
$ 5.00

Dear Miss Tingle is a charming comic-zine about Miss Lillian E. Tingle, a domestic scientist who wrote a food column for The Sunday Oregonian newspaper from 1908 to 1929.

Using her actual column letter-responses (from the thousands of cooking questions she received in her time), the zine is a charming peek into a decidedly curious character.

As A. Service writes in the introduction, "She was an unusual woman in her day: she traveled the world, never married, and devoted her life to a career centered on teaching women how to fulfill the duties of a housewife."

20 pages, half-letter size.
