Geraldine Hoff Doyle, the inspiration for "Rosie the Riveter," died at age 86 in Lansing, MI. A photo of Doyle working at American Broach & Machine Co. in Ann Arbor, MI in 1942 was reportedly the inspiration for the WWII “We Can Do It” poster. The poster was designed to encourage young women to work or volunteer for the war effort while men were serving overseas.
