To brave Atlantic

Here’s another entry from the photo page of the July 5 1929 edition of the Toronto Daily Star, this time featuring a couple who were about to sail across the Atlantic Ocean.

Saying that Leonard Outhwaite (1892-1978) was a millionaire and socially prominent New Yorker implied that he was something of a dilettante. He was actually an explorer, author, and anthropologist, so sailing the Atlantic was well within his skill set. His published works include The Atlantic; A History of An Ocean, which was republished in 2018. His papers are stored at the Rockefeller Archive Center.

According to his Find a Grave entry, Mr. Outhwaite was married three times. The woman in the photo above, the former Georgia Schofield, was wife number two. She passed away in 1950.
