Latest update - 2nd March 2013


I hope to be adding to this list over the coming months:


Edith Cavell - British - nurse
Gertrude Bell - British - secret agent
Katherine Scott - British (suggested by Stephen Cribari) - sculptress who worked with the WW1 facial reconstruction surgery team
Elsie Janis - American (suggested by Matt Jacobsen of www.oldmagazinearticles.com) - singer and entertainer who travelled to France to entertain the troops
Inez Millholland - American - journalist 

Rose O'Neill (1874 - 1944) American - artist, musician, business woman, sculptor - inventor of the Kewpie dolls, which were popular gifts during WW1
Mary Riter Hamilton - Canadian - artist who painted the aftermath of WW1 for three years

Again, if anyone has any suggestions to add to this list, I should be delighted to hear from you.
