Note Alan Little's book has event ending Feb 15. Which is in error?
From "Ayres' Lawn Tennis Almanack" (1915): "Beaulieu has now established itself as one of the most attractive tournaments on the Riviera. [...] Jessie Tripp, after being three times within a stroke of victory in the second set, overhauled Elizabeth Ryan in the third set, and won a very good final."
