Notes

First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Leah Horwitz with appreciation of all she has done for PPSEWA - which includes the land of Madame Ambassador. With best wishes. Anne Guthrie". Loosely inserted is a typed letter signed from the author to Horwitz thanking her for sending an essay by P. V. Ananta which she "read with great interest". The subject of this biography, Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit, was a prominent Indian diplomat, supporter of independence, and the first woman to hold a cabinet post in that country. After independence she became an ambassador, first to the Soviet Union and then to the US and Mexico, and in 1952 she was elected the first female president of the United Nations General Assembly. The recipient, Leah Horwitz, was a leader of the National Women's Conference of the American Ethical Congress, and PPESWA refers to the Pan Pacific and Southeast Asia Women's Conference.
