Happy Birthday Madame Alexander!
Time: 8:00 pm ET
Beatrice Berman, born Bertha Alexander (1895 -1990), founded the Madame Alexander Doll Company in 1923 in New York City. Her father, Maurice Alexander, owned a doll hospital in a street-level storefront on the Lower East Side, below the family residence. As a child, Bertha saw the broken porcelain dolls that came in for repair and vowed that someday she would make dolls that didn't break.
