What a great writer Black was. Thank you for sharing this. I'd not heard of her before (ashamed to say, since I'm a journalist)--but I'll look for more of her articles.


Today (October 14) was Black's birthday. Thanks for posting up this essay.

Thanks for the information! I ran across her name in the book Deaths on Pleasant Street by Giles Fowler. Ms. Black covered the spectacular 1909 Kansas City trial of Dr. B.C. Hyde for the murder of his philanthropist uncle-in-law, Thomas Swope. What a great writer and interesting person she was!
