The day I’m writing this, Aug. 15, the birthday of an important woman, should be declared a national holiday to honor this woman who changed the face of eating in America. In 1912, Julia Carolyn McWilliams was born in Pasadena, Calif., into an upper middle class family.
(This week The Columbian-Progress spotlights Jones Companies’ Eric Lucas.)
Q: When and where were you born?
A: I was born in Hattiesburg Aug. 5, 1978.
