Woman’s Touch – An article from August 1966

One of the (many) benefits of working for a company that has been in business since 1949, is finding unique discoveries from years past.  Earlier this week our founder, Bob Royall, shared a couple of mail pieces  with us that he found “tucked away” in a drawer.

vacation daysThe first was a newsletter from a company called Tom’s Print Shop in Zanesville, Ohio.  The piece was created in August 1966.  The newsletter covers some interesting dates with fun facts such as:

August 1, 1659William Prynne, an English Puritan and member of Parliament, opened a crusade against bobbed hair for women

August 5, 1884 Cornerstone laid for pedestal of Statue of Liberty.

There is an article on Hamburgers, stating that more than 70 million were eaten every day in America in 1966, while today 100 million are consumed daily.  An article on a boating boom, a piece on Economic Waste reviews the cost to clean up litter and a review of the “new” IRS computers are also included.

Women in Business 1966

My favorite is entitled, Woman’s Touch.  Its content is below and we hope you enjoy!

It seems to me that being a woman in business, in the finest sense, means being always a pleasure to work with and supplying the qualities that women best supply in business-serenity and calm, grace in all situations, warmth, strength, and intelligent understanding. And being a woman in business means using to the full, women’s special creative abilities on the job, whatever it may be.  So look like a girl, act like a lady, think like a man, work like a dog, but I urge you, be a woman.-Mrs. Jean Simpson, Vice President
