“America’s Best Girl”: The Life and Times of Gertrude Ederle

Virtual Event Virtual Event

The public loved Gertrude Ederle -- the first-generation American and three-time Olympic medal winner who was the first woman to swim the English channel -- because she was an all-American girl. But in reality, much of Ederle's life was informed by the rapid changes of the Jazz Age. She was a competitive, independent, and strong-willed woman who pursued her dream and found economic independence through it. This session will explore her fascinating life in the wider context of 1920s America, using materials from the Women & the American Story website. Presented by Leslie Hayes, New York Historical Society.
