Walker with accountants, 1917

During the early 1900s, most African American women labored in the domestic service industry. St. Luke Penny Savings Bank and the fraternal order from which it formed, the Independent Order of St. Luke, employed a record number of African American women in white-collar jobs during this time. Walker was known to be strict, not tolerating tardiness and insisting workers save or donate money to company fundraisers.
