Billie Sue Hankins

Hankins remembers working at the Daisy Company, “The Houghs [Daisy president and wife] were Republican, friends of Rockefeller. So when we went to work we had pins…if caught not wearing them, Mr. Hough would say ‘did you forget your pin’…But my grandmother was a Democrat. So when I went home for lunch she’d say ‘you need to take that Republican pin off until we get done eating.’” [00:30:02]
