Summary:
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. This little ceremony marked the adoption by the Joint Board of Sanitary Control of New England of the new label. The label shows that the factory wherein the garment is made had complied with the hygienic measures recommended by representatives of the public, the employers, and the workers sitting jointly. Photo shows Mrs. Fuller sitting among the workers and sewing on label by hand. On her left are Anne Antewe and Rosie Angee. 5/8/26.
