BOSTON, Mass.--Mrs. Alvan T. Fuller, wife of the Governor of the Bay State, entered the ranks of the garment workers of Boston long enough yesterday morning to sew the first Prosanis label on a Boston made garment. She took her needle in hand in the dress shop of Saul F. Matthews Co. and then at the coat shop of Carnicelli and Collins, and attached the new sanitary labels to garments just completed. Her action was the signal for thousands of needle workers in Boston to start sewing Prosanis labels on their products. Photo shows Mrs. Fuller at sewing machine. 5/8/26. [Caption with picture.]
