    A versatile author, Clare Boothe Luce is best known for her 1936 hit play The Women, which had an all-female cast. She was the first American woman appointed to a major ambassadorial post abroad, Italy.

    “She was truly a remarkable woman. Her career spanned seven decades and nearly as many professional interests—journalism, politics, the theatre, diplomacy, and intelligence.” [Henry Luce Foundation] https://www.hluce.org/programs/clare-boothe-luce-program/about/

    “Luce was introduced to mosaic by Louisa Jenkins, a mosaic artist from Big Sur, California.  Luce’s daughter Ann, a student at Stanford, died in a car accident at 19.  In her grief, Luce converted to Catholicism and commissioned artists to design a chapel in Ann’s memory at Stanford.” [Margaret Almon] https://www.margaretalmon.com/louisa-jenkins/
