The Rosalind P. Walter Collection Part I
Doyle is honored to present at auction the exceptional and extensive jewelry collection assembled by Rosalind P. Walter (1924-2020), the original "Rosie the Riveter" and a generous benefactor of PBS. Raised in privilege on Long Island and Fairfield, Connecticut, the former Rosalind Palmer joined the war effort in 1942, working as a riveter at the Vought Aircraft Company in Stratford, Connecticut. Society chronicler Igor Cassini wrote about her in his popular "Cholly Knickerbocker" column, which then inspired the hit song, Rosie the Riveter. In later years, she devoted herself to philanthropy with her principal focus on public broadcasting. She became the largest individual supporter of WNET New York, helping underwrite 67 shows or series over forty years. Read More
