My great grandmother was Rose Eisendrath. Fun to see this today! Best always!
My mother, Lois Haase Molloy, was the secretary to the president of the Eisendrath Glove Company, Mr. Eisendrath, before she married. I am delighted to view something related to the company and the people who meant so much to her.
