In 1935, Harrington took on the role of the pre-existing Aunt Jemima.
In 1937, the company originally registered the trademark.
In 1989, Quaker Oats updated the image to that of Harrington's youngest daughter. This is the image we see today.
There are also claims of racial elements as well as allegations that several recipes and menus were stolen from Harrington and the company easily persuaded her to move forward without representation of an attorney for her interest. Again, wow. Although these are only claims (for now), it makes me wonder about other companies!
