The Lady Makes Boots
March 4 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
In recognition of Women’s History Month, join us to learn about entrepreneur Enid Justin and her legendary boot-making family. Daughter of Justin Boots founder, H. J. Justin, “Miss Enid” decided in 1925 to start her own boot company in Nocona, Texas. Though discouraged by her family, this Texas original was determined to succeed. Through sheer tenacity and hard work, the Nocona Boot Company grew into a multi-million dollar corporation. Biographer Carol Lipscomb will share the risks and rewards that characterized Enid’s business career alongside the trials and tribulations of her personal life. You won’t want to miss this fascinating, funny, and sometimes infuriating story.
Dr. Carol Lipscomb is an independent historian. Having resided in Nocona for 20 years, she was introduced to Enid Justin’s life and legacy through local history and exhaustively researched her background for The Lady Makes Boots. She serves as secretary of the board of the Texas Historical Foundation and currently lives in Fort Worth.
