“Lady Edison” with latest invention: an air baby doll that can be bathed. Miss Beulah Louise Henry, of North Carolina and a direct descendent of Patrick Henry, is often called the “Lady Edison” because of her many inventions. She arrived at the Patent Office in Washington today to consult with Uncle Sam about one of her more than 40 inventions. Miss Henry is shown with her latest invention, an air baby doll which can be bathed and looks more like a real baby than any of its kind.
