Where did the name Susie come from?

An excerpt from a 1952 News Boreau article from Stephens College states
“Susie Stephens is a name - - a name representative of all students at Stephens College in Missouri - - a name adopted by the fashion design students for their own original designs. Susie Stephens is more than a name - - it is a symbol of an American way of life - the college way of life - the learning about life by doing, the doing which gives life meaning and purpose, the accomplishments which are milestones toward the future.”
