I have a message from her sister on law, but am waiting for her 
permission to circulate the biographical details. But here's an 
interesting bit: her dissertation advisor was one Josef Schumpeter!

Aside from the two pieces that you mention, I know of these two 
Science and Society articles:

"Similarities in the Work of JS Mill and K Marx" Summer 1965
"KM's Solutions to Some Problems of Classical Economics" Fall 1967

David Yaffe refers to Shoul's analysis of Say's Law in one of his early pieces.
