First US Women's Amateur Champion Lucy Barnes Brown and Nellie C. Sargent Runner Up. Inaugural US Women's Amateur Championship at Meadow Brook Country Club, Hempstead, NY, November 9, 1895 Set of 4 vintage gelatin silver prints 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches each  

Barnes: US Women's Amateur Champion, 1895
Sargent: Runner Up, US Women's Amateur Championship 1895 and 1897

"Thirteen women entered the 18-hole event. They played 9 holes, had lunch and then returned to the course and played the remaining 9 holes. Lucy Barnes (Mrs. Charles S.) Brown of Shinnecock Hills shot a walloping 69 and 63 ending with a 132, becoming America's 1st Women's National Champion. Nellie C. Sargent of Essex County Club was the runner up at 134. The hasty organization of the tournament provided no opportunity for a prepared trophy. Mr. R. D. Winthrop and Mr. W. H. Sands (both of Meadow Brook) donated a silver pitcher which served as the 1st place prize."
