Default Olde Tyme autograph contest

So I found my wife's grandmother's actograph booklet from the early 30's

80 year old Autograph book

I think it's only fitting I give away an autograph for helping me find out who this is.

I assume the 1st line is "Best Wishes"

That being said here is the contest.

You get an entry into the contest for actually posting what you think the name is from reading the autograph.

the FIRST person to correctly identify this person will win an autographed card....Will insert the card tonight here when I get home.

All other entries will be entered into a 2nd Random for another autographed card. Again will insert when I get home.

Edits of posts not allowed. Will accept entries for the 2nd random until kickoff of the Patriots game on Sunday 9/22

The 1st part of the contest will stay open until we figure out who it is.


Here is the picture of the autograph.

It has to be a woman. Unless that picture is of your wifes grandmother.

Anyway, the last part looks like "pert" that seems to be all I can identify at the moment

I believe it is a woman, She put pictures of the people who signed the pages on the page.

I have to say that by looking at the picture on the auto sheet and the wiki page it seems you are correct.

Dates match up as well!

Good job sir!
