KATHRYN CRAVENS
Signed letter from the first woman accredited as a wartime radio correspondent. A rare signature.
Typed letter signed: "Kathryn Cravens ", 1 page, 6x8¼. No place, August 14, 1950. To "Dear Mr. Sousa" in full: "I appreciated your letter very much, and am mailing you a photograph today, under separate cover. Please accept my very best wishes for a speedy recovery. Sincerely,". Kathryn Cravens (1898-1991), actress, author and news correspondent, began her career on radio as a performer. She hosted the program, "News Through a Woman's Eyes" in the 1930s before working for CBS New York, becoming one of the first women to broadcast coast to coast. She also ran her own news syndicate that featured stories and poems from her traveling days as the "Flying Reporter"--a travelling project she started to help prove airlines were safe. During World War II Cravens became the first woman accredited as a wartime radio correspondent when she was assigned to Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Also a radio interview host, she interviewed a wide variety of American stars, from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Shirley Temple. Normal mailing folds. Toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
