The Sanford Historical Society presents Kathryn Smith, who will sign copies of her book, Gertie; The Fabulous Life of Gertrude Sanford Legendre, Heiress, Explorer, Socialite, Spy. Ms Legendre was the granddaughter of Henry Sanford, founder of the City of Sanford.
She was a daring explorer and was the first American woman in uniform held as a POW by the Germans in WW II. She befriended and reveled with the Fitzgeralds, Albert Schweitzer, Lilly Pulitzer, Bing Crosby, and George Patton.
Enjoy tea and light refreshments while wearing a favorite hat to celebrate Gertie’s unique life style.
