From the Mid-Week Pictorial, Jennie MacGregor, scooped up by the Minneapolis police on April 10, 1924 for “dispensing wet goods” from her bootlegger’s life preserver. Its caption was headed with “A Perfect 36” — perhaps a reference to Tennessee, the 36th state to ratify the 19th Amendment, granting women’s suffrage? Photo: The New York Times

Nora Douglas Holt, ca. 193 (by Unidentified Photographer)

During the roaring 1920s, Nora Holt was a scandalous socialite and party girl, as exemplified by her five marriages and countless lovers… Immensely talented, Holt was a musician and singer who composed over 200 pieces. In 1918 she was the first African American woman to earn her master’s degree from Chicago Musical College. A major player during the Harlem Renaissance, she was the rich “it” girl of Harlem society.
