An image of the women’s rights activist and author Ruth Hale, likely taken at one of her well-publicized trips to the Pendleton Round-Up in Oregon in 1922 or 1923. Hale is shown on horseback in western attire. Hale was very active during this period in efforts to allow women to keep their names after marriage. The verso identifies her as “Ruth Hale / Mrs. Heywood [sic] Brown.” Hale traveled with a group of Eastern writers to the Pembleton Round-Up in 1922 and 1923, though she appears to have gotten lost in 1922, a trip that was covered widely at the time. We find no other record of this image, which was found in the Brown Brothers archive.
