About Alice Mary Radcliffe

"The great and lasting grief of Alice's life was the death of her father when she was sixteen. He died of pneumonia and was ill only one week. Alice always hated cigarette smoking because she blamed it for her father's death.

Alfred's death made important changes in the family's life. Mary blamed the doctors for Alfred's death and took up Christian Science; up to that time they had been Methodist. Alice, being the oldest, left high school without graduating, something she always regretted. She went to Bryant and Stratton, learned shorthand and typing, and went to work as a secretary with her father's former firm, John A. Roebling Steel and Wire. Her Pitman shorthand was another thing that she never forgot. Notes that she wrote to herself were always in Pitman."
