Is barred from revisiting the U.S.

The October 24 1925 edition of the Toronto Daily Star included a photograph of a Hungarian countess who had been barred from the United States.

Countess Károlyi (1892-1985) was born Katinka Andrássy. (Actually, her birth name was
Katalin Andrássy de Csíkszentkirály és Krasznahorkai, but that’s rather a lot to say or write.) She married Mihály Károlyi in 1914.

The Count was prime minister and president in Hungary just before it became a Communist republic in 1919. Wisely, he got out of town immediately after that. He passed away in 1955.

By the way, the Count’s full name was Mihály Ádám György Miklós Károlyi de Nagykároly. That’s a fairly long handle too.
