Nancy Hale

Before her 1936 relocation to Charlottesville, author Nancy Hale spent her early career in New York City and New England. This photo is probably from her time in New York as a writer and editor, working for Vogue, Vanity Fair, and, ultimately, the New York Times. It was during this time that she published her first novel, The Young Die Good.
