Margaret Leech Birthday Today

Margaret Leech Today is the anniversary of Margaret Leech’s birthdate, November 7, 1894 in Newburgh, NY. She’s the only woman to win the Pulitzer Prize twice in the History category.

I write about her in my upcoming book The Algonquin Round Table New York: A Historical Guide. She led a fascinating life marked by tragedy & triumph and I hope people learn about her in my book.
