Joanna McGaughey: Reports from Europe (1948 & 1950)

Summary of Reports



How my husband and I met Winston Churchill.

I unexpectedly meet Renato Ricci, Mussolini's minister of public buildings.

I visit the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough as they open Blenheim palace to the public.

I have an audience with Pope Pius XII (along with 35,000 others).

I learn how Roman housewives cope with daily challenges.


Note: The first report was written in 1948 when the Automobile Manufacturers Association sent William McGaughey to England to try to persuade Winston Church to give a speech in Detroit. The last four articles were written in 1950 when Joanna McGaughey took a three-week trip to Europe to write articles.
