History Character doll from Walt Disney's movie "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" which was released in 1937.
The R. G. Krueger Company was founded by Richard G. Krueger in New York City in 1917. Richard Krueger was also a producer of Cuddle Kewpie dolls during the late 1920s to 1930s.

This doll was collected by Elizabeth Gaylord Rathburn of Lincoln. Elizabeth was born in Fairmont, Nebraska. She married Howard Martin Rathburn in 1898. Howard was a general manager of Western Supply Company in Lincoln. They had four children: Winthrop, Margaret, Lois and Bette. Rathburn compiled an extensive collection of dolls from around the world, and donated them to the Nebraska State Historical Society in 1948.
