Polly Pry (1857 - 1938)

Adventurous newspaper writer, gossip columnist, and social activist who became one of the first women to run her own newspaper. 


What a woman Leonel/"Nell"/Polly Pry was! She was a great campaigner for Madame Guérin and her Inter-Allied Poppy Days in 1920 and 1921. It is indeed Madame Guérin sitting in the plane, handing Polly Pry a poppy.
