Biography

Rachel Menken (married name Katz) was the head of Menken's department store (catering to a largerly Jewish clientele) who became romantically involved with Don Draper.

She came to Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency to try to get new ideas to advertise her department store.

Pete Campbell blackmails Don, who then is propelled to suggest to Rachel to run away together to Los Angeles. Due to his marriage and children, she realizes that he just wants to run away, and that Rachel was just a good opportunity. ("Nixon vs. Kennedy")

While at a restaurant in 1962, Rachel runs into Don and Bobbie Barrett. ("The New Girl")

She reveals that she has gotten married to a man named Tilden Katz.

She is revealed to have passed away due to leukemia in April of 1970, much to Don's surprise after having dreamt of her the night before he received the news. ("Severance")
