Marjorie May, three booklets, 1935
See a Kotex ad advertising this
That day is here again . . . (World War
II menstruation booklet from
Kotex sanitary napkins, 1944, U.S.A.)
I thank the Dutch contributor of many items
to this site for these scans!
Below: Pp. 13-16. See ads for Kurb tablets. As you donor of the scans said, it's rare to
see pregnancy mentioned in a menstruation booklet (at right).
It's probably because women were moving in huge numbers into jobs for the
first time and needed to know what the law was so as not to be exploited.
Below: See some pad
dispensers (and a Kotex dispenser pad from
the 1930s) and read the story of the nurses
War I who "discovered" Kotex. The illustration at right shows
pads that dwarf the small pads available today.
