I'm bored and waiting for dh to get home, so I googled her. The history of Coats and Clark comes up and doesn't tell anything about her. Another link led me to an article in the 'Home Economist' , September l928 written by Susan L. Bates, Consumer Consultant, New Uses Section, The Cotton Textiles Institute, Inc.
When I googled The CT Institute, I couldn't get a history, just stuff on law suits and strikes - maybe they were the reason people sang, "Look for the union label'? LOL
Interesting, I'm hooked now! On to 'Aunt Lydia' - what did she do beside rugs?
