1923 [Chicago] Mrs A.F. Riese* d. Marion Leighton 6-1 7-5
* This player was Ruth Riese; her maiden name might have been Wise.
Yes and not.
She was Ruth Riese, of Saginaw, Michigan.
But her maiden name was not Wise, because in the draw of 1920 U.S.Clay Court Champs. there were Ruth Riese and Ruth Wise (and also another Ruth, King).
Her husband was Alfred F. Riese
and, as confirmed by LKK in Maiden Names thread, her maiden name was Smith.
