Towle's Dorothy Bradford pattern dates back to 1913. I'm not sure who this pattern was named for. There were several well known "Dorothy Bradford's". There was Dorothy Elizabeth Bradford, the British Painter (1897-1986). And also there was Dorothy Bradford who came to America on the Mayflower and was the wife of William Bradford, who served as the governor of Plymouth Colony. Your pick!
