    BIOGRAPHY

    Life long resident of Belmont, N.Y., and wife of William Hector MacKenzie, a former N.Y. State Assemblyman.

    SCOPE AND CONTENT

    Two loose-leaf bound cookbooks. One, bound in a pebbled three-ring black notebook, contains 139 leaves of holograph recipes and lists. It is suggested the notebook was started when Helene Paul was enrolled in Miss Spence's finishing school in New York City. The second, 46 leaves bound by two rings, is a compilation of recipes and illustrations that Mrs. MacKenzie clipped from assorted magazines and newspapers. The collection also includes a more detailed biography and description of the cookbooks prepared by John Patrick Ford, a relative of Mrs. MacKenzie.
