Here’s another photograph from the February 24 1928 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:
Birdie Reeve Kay (1907-1996) was actually 20 at the time that this photo went to press.
She went on to a career in vaudeville as “The World’s Fastest Typist”: she could type at over 200 words a minute. She later opened a stenography business in Chicago, typing theses for students at the University of Chicago, presumably quickly.
The Chess History website has this biography of Birdie Reeve, including a better reproduction of the photo shown here.
