Rosalind P. Walter, the original Rosie the Riveter, dead at 95

Rosalind P. Walter died Wednesday at the age of 95 in NYC. Walter was one of many women to pitch in during World War 2, working on an assembly line as a riveter on Corsair fighter planes in Connecticut. While she was working there, columnist Igor Cassini profiled her in his column — which caught the attention of songwriters John Loeb and Redd Evans who later wrote the 1942 song ’Rosie the Riveter’
