Along 66, May 2018: Did Mary Cotter Or Didn't She?


These are taken from the Route 66 News site which had many more entries, more information and pictures.  Well worth checking out.  I just pick the ones of the most interest to me.

MAY 23--  Did Mary Cotter fabricate her role as a Fred Harvey Company architect?

She claimed that she built the restaurant buildings for Fred Harvey along the Santa Fe Railroad as well as the structure at the Grand Canyon National Park and the La Posada in Winslow, Arizona.  Fred Shaw has written a book on this subject  "False Architect:  The Mary Cotter Hoax."  She had no architectural training.
