According to the Brown University Archives, there was no graduate of Brown University or Pembroke College with the last name of Summers until 1935 and his first name was Robert. Hence it seems likely that all four models were made by Edith May Summerscales (1903-1976), who graduated from Pembroke College in 1925. She was from Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and spent her lifeas a mathematics teacher in a junior high school there.
