A trailblazing female journalist was born and raised in North Dakota.
It has been written that Emma “Bab” Lincoln was “the first woman reporter to cover the White House; the first American (correspondent) to cover the Paris fashion shows, and the first to develop and edit a women’s page as a regular segment of a major newspaper.”
In 1993, Steven Spielberg directed and co-produced the movie “Schindler’s List,” making the country aware of Oskar Schindler, a German industrialist credited with saving the lives of more than 1,200 Jews in the mid-1940s.
