One of the greatest female athletes of all time, Mildred Ella 'Babe' Didrikson was a track and field Olympian, an All-American basketball player, and a champion golfer. She competed in the 1932 Summer Olympics (80m hurdles gold medalist, javelin throw gold medalist, and high jump silver medalist). This photograph of Didrikson, from the Condé Nast Archive, was taken by Lusha Nelson in January 1933.
