Lucille Bishop Smith (1892 – 1985)
Lucille Bishop Smith had a long career as an educator, businesswoman, and inventor of Lucille's All Purpose Hot Roll Mix, the nation's first. She was a home economist who established one of the first college level commercial foods and technology departments in the U.S., at Prairie View A&M University. She published Lucille's Treasure Chest of Fine Foods and, at age 82, established a family corporation, Lucille B. Smith's Fine Foods. In 1969, she was appointed to the Governor's Commission on the Status of Women and received numerous awards, including Merit Mother of Texas (twice) and Prairie View's Distinguished Partner in Progress Award.In a short but exhausting rundown of Smith's other pursuits, food historian and former food editor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer Toni Tipton Martin writes on her terrific blog, The Jemima Code:
"She raised funds for community service projects, fought to raise standards in slums, developed culinary vocational programs in Ft. Worth and at Prairie View, was responsible for the first extension workers being employed in Tarrant County, brought the first packaged Hot Roll Mix to market, conducted Itinerant Teacher Training Classes, developed Prairie View's Commercial Cooking and Baking Department, compiled five manuals for the State Dept. of Industrial Education, and was foods editor of Sepia Magazine.
Fron the houstonpress blog:
Before Smith died in 1985 at 93 years old, she even established a family corporation, Lucille B. Smith's Fine Foods. Of the hot roll mix and Smith's company, Ruthe Winegarten and Sharon Kahn noted in their book, Brave Black Women: "One of her best customers was the heavyweight champion Joe Lewis."
