Into Africa. Two Trips, 15 Years Apart

Vivien Kellems


Here are some things women just didn’t do in the early 20thcentury:
join the college debate team; pursue a PhD in economics; found and run a highly successful manufacturing concern; protest for women’s equality; challenge the federal government’s tax code. Vivien did all of that and did it with style, being named the Best-Dressed Businesswoman by the Fashion Academy Awards. She was passionate, feisty, brilliant and outspoken, and she kept fighting the good fight right up until her death in 1975.
