Ruth Lambert of Los Alamos has covered a lot of ground in 100 years. From Minnesota, to Wisconsin, California, Colorado and New Mexico, Lambert has pretty much seen and done it all.On her 100th birthday, which was March 22, Lambert reminisced about all the places she had been and things she had experienced. She grew up in Austin, Minn., and majored in journalism from the University of Iowa. While in college, Lambert said, she worked at the university’s newspaper. Her journalism career took her to the Janesville Gazette, in Janesville, Wis. While employed there, Lambert appeared to have rebelled against the norm; during a time when it seemed many female reporters focused on gossip, Lambert was writing exposs on gangsters.She explained she wrote about the Pure Milk Association in Chicago. The cooperative received, processed and marketed milk produced by its member dairies, which included dairies in Wisconsin.Lambert said a “semi-crook” in Chicago tried to take over the association but wasn’t successful. She said there were strikes and even a trial. The controversy caused her to leave town for a while.She also worked for the United Press in Sacramento, Calif., typing whatever was transmitted through the Teletype. Lambert said she started working at 2 p.m.
