Subject Russia
Abstract A documentary series featuring five biographies of remarkable women: explorers, pilots, thrill seekers and adventurers. Marguerite Harrison (1879 - 1967) was a reporter, spy, film maker, and translator who was one of the four founding members of the Society of Woman Geographers. Harrison spied for the United States in Russia and Japan, arriving in Russia in 1920 as an Associated Press correspondent. She assessed Bolshevik economic strengths and weakness and assisted American political prisoners in Russia. She was held captive in Lubyanka, the infamous Russian prison, for ten weeks. While there she contracted tuberculosis and due to pressure from her influential contacts she was eventually set free in exchange for food and other aid to Russia.
