Married Japanese author

Here’s another photograph from the August 18 1928 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:

It had actually been a while since Gertrude Boyle Kanno (1878-1937) had been married to a Japanese author – she and poet Takeshi Kanno were wed in 1907 and divorced in 1915. She became famous for her portrait sculptures, including Albert Einstein, Isadora Duncan, Christy Mathewson, and both Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt.
