Adventurer. She is regarded as America's greatest woman explorer, whom traveled extensively in South America, Asia and the South Pacific in the early 20th Century. From 1907 to 1935, accounts of her journeys were published in over 20 articles of the National Geographic Magazine. In 1925, she helped launch the Society of Woman Geographers and served as its first president until 1933.
