CAM Paper Doll, 1933
Somebody's Stenog was a comic strip that ran from 1918 through 1941. Before World War I most stenographers were men. Because of the manpower shortage created by the war, women had to take over the work typically performed by men. One such woman was Cam O'Flage, the heroine of Somebody's Stenog. Cam was pretty and smart, and worked as a girl Friday in a nut-and-bolt factory. This newspaper paper doll of Cam is from the Sunday comics of September 03, 1933.
