Louise Bryant

(1885 - 1936)

Having begun in 1912 to write for radical publications, among them The Masses and Blast, Louise Bryant left her dentist husband and her home in Portland, Oregon, on New Year’s Eve in 1915 for fellow journalist John Reed in New York City. She and Reed both reported on World War I from Europe, and then they traveled to Russia in 1917 in time to witness the October Revolution.
