Mrs. Norton, who was born in New Haven, Conn., conducted newspaper columns
and wrote special articles on food and other subjects of interest to women
for many years.
>    She wrote for King Features for many years and also for the old "New
York World."  During the early days of motorized transportation she wrote a
column called "Automobile Fads and Fancies."  During the last war she
compiled a cookbook.  During recent years she had made an exhaustive study
of the cookery in various parts of the world.  She was ready to publish a
book on that native cookery of 157 nations.

The native cookery book was probably never published. The wartime cookbook
was titled:  Mrs. Norton's cook-book : selecting, cooking and serving for
the home table. New York and London : G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1917. ix, 634
pages. In numerous libraries. In New York, Cornell, New York Public,
Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, New York Academy of Medicine and the
Queens Borough Public Library have copies.
