In researching Margaret Newman I found a few newspaper articles regarding her, dating from the early 1940s to the early 1950s, she was a well known designer in Miami Florida, she's credited with designing the "Newman Slack Suit" and the "Whisper Woolen" outfits as well as swimsuits & evening gowns.
