Jane Plitt ran a thriving business consulting practice until she became enthralled with the story of Martha Matilda Harper. Plitt became a Visiting Scholar at the University of Rochester. Plitt spent six years criss-crossing the United States and Canada, knocking on doors of former Harperites and relatives to piece the story together. Without their warm welcome and storage of Harper records and memorabilia, the Harper story could not have been written. Now three books about Martha exist for the very young (Martha’s Magical Hair), the young adults (Martha the Hairpreneur) and the serious biography readers (Martha Matilda Harper and the American Dream) .
