Miss C H Lippincott Catalog 1903  Lippincott began publishing her picture in her catalog in 1899, explaining that "a number of seeds men (shall I call them men?) have assumed women's names in order to sell seeds."  White countered a few years later with the protest, "I am a real live woman and I give personal attention to my business."
