The Telephone Pioneers of America, now known as Pioneers – A Volunteer Network, is a nonprofit volunteer organization of current and former telecommunications industry employees. In the early 1980s they sold dolls as a fundraiser. The 15.5″ doll pictured was made by A&H and represents a phone operator of the 1890s. She is all vinyl, jointed, with sleep eyes and rooted hair. They also sold a doll dressed in a contemporary repair person’s uniform. Black and white versions were available.
