Macy's College.......
« Thread started on: Apr 5th, 2008, 10:26am »

A young Henrietta Kanengeiser would never have become Hattie Carnegie, if it weren't for Macy's Department Store, and her first employer, Isador Strauss. (At the time, Mr. Strauss was the President of Macy's Department Store.) Sadly Mr. Strauss and his wife drowned in the sinking of the Titanic in 1912.

Henrietta was nicknamed "Hattie" due to her incredible talent in the art of millinery, which she was first trained in the craft at Macy's.
Hattie had a number of jobs during her employment and training at Macy's (1902-1909)
Her jobs included, sales girl.......This was her job when she met John Zanft, Hattie was also a clothing and hat model, for the department store, and her favorite job of all working in the millinery department.
Ironically Macy's became an unofficial trade school for Hattie, so I thought it was fitting that I share this website.
Macy's now has an official trade school.
