Duncan Hines’ birthday is today!

Duncan Hines, best know for his cake mixes, celebrated his birth today in 1880 and he died Mar. 15, 1959. He was a restaurant and food critic and he wrote quite a few books (which are mostly out of print), including:
The Best Places to Go: A Duncan Hines Vacation Guide
Adventures in Good Eating

These are not out of print, but no one in MCLS owns them:
Adventures in Good Cooking and the Art of Carving in the Home
The Dessert Book by Duncan Hines
