Hortense Odlum (1892–?), U.S. businesswoman. A Woman's Place, ch. 16 (1939).
Although highly successful as president of Bonwit Teller, a New York City women's store, Odlum retained a traditional social perspective. She had a wealthy husband, three sons who were partly grown when she took the presidency (which was her first job), a luxurious home, and household help.
