Here’s a photo from the October 6 1931 edition of the Toronto Daily Star of a young woman who was apparently about to hand President Herbert Hoover an official invitation to the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics.
A search for Felicia Spillard turned up some odds and ends:
- Her Find a Grave entry, which indicated that she was born in Mexico City in 1907 and passed away in California in 1979.
- The University of California register for 1927, which includes her name.
- An article from the Los Angeles Herald in 1919, which states that Ms. Spillard, who was 12 at the time, surprised a jewel thief at the family home. Fortunately, she was unharmed.
