Mary Oursler, Census Expert
Mary Oursler, who was a U.S. census expert, researching the ages of people whose births have not been officially registered.
The caption says: "Statistical data might be dry for most persons but Miss Mary C. Oursler, Official Custodian of Census Records, U.S. Census Bureau, finds it the spice of her job. She is an expert at discovering the ages of persons whose births have not been registered, digging up data on heir cases as well as for criminal cases in importance. Miss Oursler has been on her present job for the last twenty years."
I figure that all genealogists owe a debt to Mary C. Oursler for research and tenacity!
