  1. Can this list also be presented reformatted alphabetically? - as it gets longer it becomes more difficult to find someone!

    1. Alphabetically by first name? (chummy) Last name? (stuffy) Country? To the nearest whole number, there are 0 readers of this page in a month. If you are fishing for a name use CTRL+F? I like chronological sort here: implies shoulders of giants.

  2. Thank you for researching these women and providing this information here. I found your site when looking for more info on Yvonne Barr and was grateful to see all of these articles as well. Out of time now, but I'll be back to review more.
