Grace Loucks became the President of the International Typographical Union (ITU) Woman's Auxiliary in 1929. At that time 4 typgoraphical auxiliaries existed in Michigan and she began working to expand the number of Auxiliaries in Michigan. Over the next few years auxiliaries were developed in Detroit, Lansing, Jackson, Battle Creek, Ann Abor, Kalamazoo, Muskegon, Saginaw, and Bay City. In 1938 at the Michigan Federation of Typographical Union convention in Saginaw, Loucks requested the various Michigan auxiliaries could become a state federation. The Michigan Federation of Typographical Auxiliaries held their first convention in 1939. Their intended purpose was to bring the family members of typogrpahical union members together and promote the use of union labels.
