American journalists and photographers during World
War One bore witness through images and descriptions which they sent home to their readers. Who were these women in a male dominated profession? It was Photographers Helen John Kirtland, Margaret Hall and Alice Rohe. It was journalists Mary Robert Rhinehart, Mary Boyle O’Reilly, Nellie Bly and Peggy Hull. Hull was a Cornwall on Hudson resident from 1933 to 1953. This lecture will cover what these women saw and the dangers they experienced in undertaking such assignments.
