Peggy Hull Deull, America’s first female war correspondent

There’s a new post on the University of Kansas Kenneth Spencer Research Library‘s blog about a 2014 Summer Conservation Intern’s experience working on items related to Peggy Hull Deull, America’s first female war correspondent.

Born in 1889 in Bennington, KS, Peggy Hull Deull was inspired to become a journalist during the First World War. As a war correspondent, she traveled from the US to Mexico, Paris, London, Siberia, and Shanghai.

“Peggy’s collection is also one of the many fantastic features that facilitates our study of war history, and in particular, helps to commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I,” said Amber Van Wychen, 2014 Summer Conservation Intern.
