Biographical/Historical note
Biographical/Historical note
Hoch was a Tupperware Lady from 1957 to 1967, and she filmed events at several of Tupperware Corporation's Jubilees. Married with three children, she found Tupperware sales the ideal way to earn extra money so that she could be home with her kids before and after school and host parties in the evenings when they were settled in for the night. She was successful enough to become a manager in 1960 and was given a new Ford automobile as a reward for her success.
