Page 22 of 70. Prophecy on page 21 reads, "In social New York awaits the brilliant career of Alice Tillison. Her fine residence and great literary abilities, being president of sixteen clubs, makes her a prominent personage among the big four hundred. Her eccentric ideas with reference to danger, force her to cling to that old fashioned vehicle, the automobile, instead of the new wheel-less aerial motor car." Alice M. Tilleson married Walter E. Evers in 1912, and the couple moved to Wausau, Wisconsin. She died there at age ninety-nine. Information about Alice Tilleson has been researched through U.S. census data and other genealogical resources.
