AUDREY RUSSELL
Signature of Britain's first accredited female war correspondent, on BBC letterhead
Autograph Sentiment signed: "Best Wishes/Yours Sincerely/Audrey Russell", 3¼x5. Signed on letterhead of The British Broadcasting Corporation. Audrey Russell made her stage debut in Victoria Regina at London's Lyric Theatre in 1937, but joined the National Fire Service at the outset of World War II. (She would later write three books about London firefighters.) In 1942, she joined the BBC's wartime staff, its first female news reporter. She broke another barrier in 1944, becoming the first accredited female war correspondent, covering the fighting in Northwest Europe. In the postwar years, she is best remembered for reporting on State occasions, including the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II (1953) and the funeral of Sir Winston Churchill (1965). She was also a talented amateur artist. Lightly toned. Ink notes on verso, lightly shows through (not affecting signature). Fine condition.
