Rebecca Hourwich Reyher
She traveled to Africa six times, with the first trip being in 1924, and this inspired two books, Zulu Woman (1948) and The Fon and His Hundred Wives. She also wrote many articles about Africa, and contributed to Speaker for Suffrage and Petitioner for Peace, a memoir by Mabel Vernon. Other contributors to that memoir were Consuelo Reyes-Calderon, Fern S. Ingersoll, and Hazel Hunkins Hallinan.
In 1937 she left America as part of the "Flying Caravan" of delegates of the People's Mandate Committee, which went to South America and was meant to urge ratification of the peace treaties adopted at the Buenos Aires Conference of 1936, and to create support for a petition demanding that governments reject war.
