About This Photograph

Miss Margaret Curtis of Boston can be seen here at Southampton in 1900. Margaret, along with her sister, Harriot Curtis, were best known for their philanthropic efforts and success on the golf course, combining to win four U.S. Women’s Amateur titles and donating the trophy for the biennial Curtis Cup Match. The pair were most proud of their charitable efforts, including cofounding the Maverick Dispensary in 1909, an East Boston health clinic for Italian Americans. Margaret and Harriot will be remembered for their national golf titles and their founding of the Curtis Cup Match, but their service to the poor, the wounded and the oppressed prove that they were champions off the course, as well.
