The Historical Birthday-Tea Party 27th February

No birthday girl today so another one from yesterday Mabel Dodge Luhan

February 26, 1879 – August 13, 1962.

Much married New York Salonist, her memoir (so we are told, I’ve not read it) Intimate Memories (1933) details relationships with several women. She knew Natalie Barney and was a friend of Gertrude Stein and Alice B Toklas.

A fellow traveller rather than really one of us, I think. Apparently she knew how to throw a party, and was great at mixing people together, so maybe I’ll wait for an invitation from her, rather than the other way round…
