                       All about Julia

Julia Carolyn McWilliams was born August 15,1912 in Pasadena, California. Julia was the oldest of three siblings. Growing up, she played tennis, basketball, and golf which she continued playing through college. Julia went to Smith College in Massachusetts. After college, she moved to New York City.

During World War II, Julia was in the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) where she worked for the US government and was sent to Sri Lanka which is north of the Indian Ocean. There she met Paul Child and fell in love. As a couple, people would stare at them because Julia was 6 feet 2 inches tall and Paul was a lot shorter.

After returning to the U.S.A, they got married. Paul was sent to France in 1948 where Julia was introduced to french cuisine. She applied to Le Cordon Bleu cooking school and decided she wanted to be a chef. Soon they moved back to the U.S.A where she published her first cookbook. Her book sold so many copies she was invited to be on the news. After she became pouplar, she made three tv shows. Since she helped people be great cooks         made a museum abot her.
