Yes she was Bert's secretary -- and from some of the hints dropped, possibly an ex-lover as well.
And it was a truly eerie/brilliant bit of irony that Burt died the night of the Moon landing, when a few years earlier, he had eulogized Miss Blankenship with "Born in 1898 in a barn, she died on the 37th floor of a skyscraper. She was an astronaut."

Thanks pikachu for the avatar!
I was a little sad that MM had no Golden Globe nominations this year. This year quite a few were snubbed. Jon Hamm didn't even get a nomination.
15 Enraging Golden Globe TV Snubs and Surprises: Amy Poehler, 'Mad Men' & More - The Daily Beast
I think the Hollywood Foreign Press was intent on setting trends with their TV nominations, and show they were forward thinking by giving so many nominations to streaming services. Being on traditional TV mediums hurt shows this year ... and ultimately hurt the awards show since the TV portions were so boring! Think about it -- Amy Poehler, Andy Samberg and Brooklyn 99 all won last year, and not one of them was even nominated this year? To me, that's about politics, not performance. There's nothing Mad Men could do about that ... except move the show to Amazon!
Also, the show sucked last year. It didn't deserve award nominations.

A TRAILER for this upcoming season.
THE PARTY'S OVER!
Wow, Sally has grown up right in front of all of us.
Love the soundtrack on this trailer.
I love that they have respected Kiernan Shipka's talent enough to let her play the role of Sally throughout the series rather than recasting the child parts in order to advance plotlines like a lot of shows do.
