One for the ladies

Postby Jay H on Wed Nov 28, 2007 4:52 pm

Greetings All,
Here is "One for the Ladies"......
A nice nostalgic article with photos on the "fairer sex" :) :) sent to me by Liam Stephens. I am not sure where this article was orginally published (Liam...??), but Mr. Stephens dug it up and sent it with his best wishes to his good friends Irma and Jan, and then sent to me to post here on the Checker Sharing Board....

A rather nice idea for a thread !!
Just a small way of throwing out some kudos to the ladies that enjoy the game as much as the men do !!!Image
I will scan and post any articles that I come across .
Anybody else want to contribute.....????

Thanx again , Liam !!!!

Regards

Greetings All,
Here is one from the MARCH 1950 issue of the AMERICAN CHECKERIST MAGAZINE

An inspirational piece, that the editor asks the readers to show to all "women folk" :lol: they come into contact with, with the idea of converting them into players.

Does anyone know of anything further on the activities of Harriet Andrews Stuart ? (Checkeristically speaking)
