Alice Miller Richardson was 15 when she started as a hotel manager for The Mission Inn in 1874. She quickly earned a reputation for managing hotels in her own unique way. By 1904, her business success enabled her to have a home and 400 acres of beachfront in Laguna Beach, and her friends included artists, cooks, actors, presidents, architects, and poets.
