'v; . ■ FULL BANKING SERVICES To Northwestern Alaska Since 1904 — BRANCH OFFICE IN KOTZEBUE — From Popovers to Plenty In 1929, a bright-eyed, fair-haired wisp of a girl landed in the United States from Newfoundland, armed with no more thnr> inbred determination and a scholarship award to study music. She sought no particular conquest in the strange new world, Her major problem, aside from loneliness, was lack of money. Odd jobs, contributed little to her resources in these depres sion days. Then unexpectedly, imagination, instinct and plain common sense—combined with a touch of sheer Irish luck— started tne hardworking teen-' ager on a career that was to bring her worldwide acclaim, wealth, and a great sense of fulfillment The girl was Patricia Murphy, now one of the nation’s out standing restaurateurs, world famous for her Candlelight res taurants in Yonkers, New York and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida ... and a horticulturalist of inter national repute. In her auto biography, “Glow of Candle light,” just published by Pren tice-Hall, she tells of her early struggles against overwhelm ing odds, and of that capacity for plain hard work that was her real secret of success. Her life work began when it small favorite neighborhood restaurant in Brooklyn went out of business. Patricia Mur phy calculated that if she could serve 100 meals a day and make a dime profit on each, she could pay the rent and keep a fair share for herself. With $60 she had saved from earlier jobs m New York, she set out on this wild scheme to revive the bankrupt restaurant. No detail was too small for her perfectionist soul. Good food and a candlelit setting were prerequisites, and a search for one item on the menu that I would make people talk led to j the serving of her first pop | overs. The Brooklyn enterprise I prospered beyond all hopes. And from this first Candlelight restaurant came ultimately her missmmmmammmm restaurants in Westchester, New York, and Bahia Mar in Fort Lauder dale, Florida, that now at tract millions of diners year __ly. The pop Patricia Murphy overs were parlayed into a virtual empire, two million of them being served in the Westchester restaurant alone last year! How Patricia Murphy’s mod est success grew, how her love of flowers led her to create gardens in her restaurants and homes that became internation al showpiaees, how her mar riage to her beloved ‘ Rosie,”' Captain James E. Kiernan, re directed her life into happier, more contented channels,*and how his tragic death affected her at the moment of her greatest successes ,.. make an absorbing chronicle. In “Glow of Candlelight,” she tells the whole story, and appends a valuable garden sec tion with full color illustra tions, and her personal treas ury of recipes. Especially, she describes her own fabulous transformation from a hungry, struggling Newfoundland girl to £.•£**?* neatest re ward lies in helping others.
