Abstract:
Evangeline McLennan Davis was a woman who refused to be limited by the social conventions of her time. Born in 1914, Davis's early successes were in athletics. She earned a national tennis ranking and reached the quarter finals in what is now the U.S. Open. She later played golf and won the Southern Golf championship four times. In the 1930s and 1940s, she was a sportswriter. Many believe she was the first woman sportswriter in the country. In the late 1930s, an Atlanta paper sent her to report on the Far East, and she worked for a year in pre-war Japan. She married and settled in Greensboro with her journalist husband. They moved to Virginia in 1960, and she edited a weekly newspaper, The Virginia Gazette. Davis died in Raleigh in 2004.
