Dinner and a Movie: The Harvey Girls

Course number : 140020   ID : 103    Section number : OLLI
« back to classes page
Restaurateur Fred Harvey set the standard for fine dining along the Santa Fe Railroad from Kansas City throughout the west in the 1870s and into the mid-20th century. He could not have done so without the Harvey Girls who staffed the Harvey House restaurants and are credited with civilizing the American West. Their lives are romanticized in the 1946 MGM musical, “The Harvey Girls”, starring Judy Garland and Angela Lansbury. The real-life Harvey girls worked long hours, were expected to be of good moral character, and had to deal with rough customers. Learn about them as you enjoy authentic Harvey House cuisine.
