Tillie the Toiler was a comic strip that ran from 1921 to 1959. It was created by Russ Westover and Bob Gustfson. Originally conceived as "Rose of the Office" they changed the name to Tillie the Toiler after the main character, a secretary and part-time model named Tillie. Tillie worked for a fashion mogul named J. Simpkins, and her trademark was her impeccable fashion sense, always in the latest fashions.
