Title
Statement by Mount Holyoke President Mary Wooley on Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins' ancestry and marriage
Abstract
Mount Holyoke President Mary Wooley presented this statement, probably to the House Judiciary Committee, writing: “As a believer in fair play I respectfully request that your committee investigate … who is responsible for the widespread distribution of these false and evidently maliciously intended statements, which for some unknown reason have been directed at an able, honorable and patriotic public official who has made an exceptional record as an administrator and is generally recognized as the most capable Secretary of Labor in the history of that department.�
