Cup stays in Canada

Here’s a photograph from the September 26 1932 edition of the Toronto Daily Star of a Canadian woman who had just won a golf trophy.

Searches revealed that the cup was for the Canadian women’s amateur championship, and that Ms. Kirkham, whose home course was Forest Hills in Montreal, was the first Canadian to win the trophy since 1926.

I couldn’t find out much else about her, except that she won some other tournaments in the 1930s and that she was leading after the first round of the 1936 championship. I don’t know what happened to her after that.
