They were aware of whose relatives worked for whom, and they were fiercely loyal to the companies employing their parents, producing plenty of competitive posturing at school. Agnes found most of her classmates’ constant one-upmanship maddening. She noticed that one girl, Mary Hunter, the niece of writer Mary Austin, didn’t seem intimidated by all the fame and competition around her. The two became best friends and remained so throughout their lives. The class Agnes enjoyed the most was pantomime.
She came to believe that she was the worst pupil in her class, and that was hard to swallow.
