Louise Malloy (1858-1947) was the first newspaperwoman in Baltimore, Maryland, and a social and civic crusader. Her efforts led to the establishment of Juvenile Court in Baltimore and also resulted in improvements in the Fire Department. At the Baltimore American, she specialized in women's interests, did editorial and feature work, was dramatic editor for many years, and wrote a daily humor column entitled "Josh Wink." Her literary work included short stories, poems, articles, essays, and several plays, including "A Woman of War," written with General Felix Agnus, and "The Free Willer," for which she received a prize from the Eastern Shore Society of Maryland. Her papers consist of manuscripts of plays, poems, short stories, articles, and miscellaneous personal records documenting her life and literary career.
