POUND, LOUISE (Louise Pound)
United States
Born 30 June 1872 in Lincoln, Nebraska
Died 27 June 1958 in Lincoln, Nebraska
Did not marry.
[Active circa 1890-1915]

Won the singles title at the Western Championships in 1897 and Heidelburg in 1900. Noted author Willa Cather was Pound's friend in their youth.

In later life Louise Pound was a distinguished college professor, folklorist, linguist and author.The following entry from the Official Nebraska Government Website provides an overview of Louise Pound's life and career(s) as well as the Louise Pound Collection held at the Nebraska State Historical Society:

Louise Pound was born June 30, 1872, in Lincoln, Nebraska. Her parents, Stephen and Laura Pound, had come to Lincoln in 1869; she was the second of their three children. Their mother educated the three children at home until they entered the University of Nebraska preparatory school. Miss Pound graduated from the University of Nebraska with a Bachelor of Arts in 1892 and also earned a Master of Arts degree and a diploma in music there. She then completed a dissertation at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, passing the examination for a doctorate magna cum laude (1900) in two instead of the usual seven semesters.

In 1890, when she was 18, Louise Pound became Lincoln City Tennis Champion. She competed against men for the University of Nebraska title in 1891 and 1892, winning both years. In 1897 she won the Women's Western Tennis Championship and in 1900 the Championship of Heidelberg. She also played a tie match with the Olympic men's singles tennis titleholder while at Heidelberg. She won the state golf championship in 1916 and a 100 mile cycling medal in 1906, was a figure skater on ice, introduced skiing to Lincoln, and managed the university women's basketball team. She is the only woman in the University of Nebraska Sports Hall of Fame.

During World War I Miss Pound served as a staff member of the Women's Committee of the State Council of Defense; she was acting state head of the National League for Women's Services in 1918, chairman of Overseas Relief Activities, and a member of the Food for France Committee. She belonged to the DAR, Phi Beta Kappa, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Theta Sigma Phi, Chi Delta Phi, Sigma Tau Delta, Delta Omicron, Alpha Lambda Delta, Delta Kappa Gamma, Pi Gamma Mu, and Mortar Board. She was also a member of the Lincoln Country Club, the Lincoln University Club, Copper Kettle, Wooden Spoons, and the Omaha Press Club. In 1955 she was elected the first woman president of the Modern Language Association.

Miss Pound served 50 years at the University of Nebraska, retiring in 1945. She taught American Literature, Contemporary English, and Comparative Literature. During summer sessions she gave courses at other educational institutions including the University of California, Yale, University of Chicago, Columbia University, and Stanford University. She contributed to the Encyclopedia Britannica, American Speech Quarterly, American Literature, Southern Folklore Quarterly, and College English. Her correspondents included H.L. Mencken and Dorothy Canfield Fisher.

Louise Pound died June 27, 1958, at the family home in Lincoln. She was survived by her brother Roscoe, Dean Emeritus of Harvard Law School, and her sister, Olivia, retired Lincoln High School administrator.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

This collection is arranged in seven series: 1) Biographical and personal information; 2) Correspondence, 1881-1958; 3) Folklore materials; 4) Literature/language materials; 5) Lectures and speeches; 6) Organizations and activities; and 7) Miscellaneous.

Most of the materials reflect Louise Pound's lifelong research interest in American folklore, folk songs, dialects, and popular language. They provide details concerning her career at the University of Nebraska and the academic, civic and social organizations to which she belonged.

Miss Pound's biographical materials, including a complete bibliography of her publications and clippings detailing her accomplishments, are in located in Series 1.

Correspondents whose letters appear in Series 2 include Henry L. Mencken, Dorothy Canfield Fisher, Mari Sandoz, Mamie Meredith, Ben Botkin, and Catherine LeMaster Eckrich. She maintained a lifelong correspondence with Anni Pfister, a Jewish friend whom she met as a student at the University of Heidelberg. Some of those letters poignantly describe Mrs. Pfister's sojourn in the Philippines during World War II and the isolated life she led in Switzerland in her later years. (A few additional letters on specific research topics are found in Series 3 and Series 4 with the research notes to which they are related, as Miss Pound had filed them.) Note: Due to their condition, some original correspondence has been photocopied and removed. The original correspondence is restricted for preservation. Researchers must use the photocopies in the collection.

Folklore publications and resource files are in Series 3. In addition to two major works, a section of the Dictionary of Regional Folklore titled "Pioneer Days in the Midwest" and the book Origins of the Ballad, Miss Pound published dozens of short articles on Nebraska and Western folklore topics throughout her life. A number of her articles dealt with tall tales or with the legends recounted about generic sites like lovers' leaps.

In Series 4 are Louise Pound's articles and typed presentations on literary and language topics. Some discuss general subjects including contemporary fiction, American speech, and American slang. Others analyze more specific subjects like dream language or patterns of word formation related to a particular part of speech. Still others, generally very brief, demonstrate the uses of a single word or expression ("it," "darn," "OK"). Miss Pound stored in her language resource files a lifetime's clippings from magazines and newspapers in which she had marked examples of popular speech; she continued collecting examples all her life.

Series 5 includes Miss Pound's files for course lectures and the note cards for her lectures and speeches. The complete text of most of her speeches was handwritten on 3" x 5" cards. Her most frequent topics were her folklore and language research interests; in addition, she spoke on several occasions about women's roles and university life.

Fascinating comments on student activities and groups at the University of Nebraska at the end of the nineteenth century and in the early years of the twentieth century appear in Series 6. Louise Pound took pride in her achievements in tennis and cycling and her involvement in the national social sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma. She took equal pleasure in her participation in Golden Fleece, a group of red-headed University of Nebraska women; and in NUTT (Nu Epsilon Tau Tau), a short-lived honorary society for women created to satirize traditional honorary groups.

Also in Series 6 are materials related to the professional organizations to which Louise Pound belonged: the Nebraska Writers Guild, the American Dialect Association, the Modern Language Association, and Chi Delta Phi.

Series 7 houses miscellaneous materials including social and political articles and clippings. There are a few popular magazines from the 1920s and catalogs from various universities, as well as 1954 centennial sections of the Lincoln Journal-Star

MARKUS, "DORA" (Dorothea Markus)
Austria
Born 1900
Died ????
[Active in 1938]

In 1938 she won in a minor categories at Viareggio ( not the main International Tournament) winning the Singles and the Mixed (with Gillo Pontecorvo, the future director, famous for The Battle of Algiers) .

A mysterious woman of literary history, also a tennis player.

"Dora Markus" is a poem of the Italian Nobel Prize winner Eugenio Montale:
Il canto delle sirene: Dora Markus

There was always much uncertainty about the identity of Dora Markus. Was she a real woman from Carinthia, Austria, or a literary person only?
In a book published by the "Circolo Tennis Viareggio" there a page that talks about her playing the tournament in Viareggio (in a minor category) in 1938, winning the Singles and the Mixed (with Gillo Pontecorvo, the future director, famous for The Battle of Algiers).

It would seem that Dorothea "Dora" Markus was a Jew born in Vienna in 1900 and emigrated in 1938 to London and then in the United States.
We don't know if she played tennis before 1938, and at which level.

Montale never personally never met the girl, but only saw the photos of the legs, sent from Trieste by the writer and friend Roberto Bazlen. The second part of the poem, written in 1939, alludes to Dora's nostalgia for Carinthia. Her homeland was annexed by the Nazis in 1938. This was doubtless the motivation for her emigration.

CIBULKOVA, DOMINIKA
Slovakia
Born 06 May 1989 in Bratislava, Slovakia
Height: 5' 3" (1.61 m)
Plays: Right-handed (two-handed backhand)
Married Michel Navara on 09 July 2016.
Nicknames: "Domi", "The Pocket Rocket"
[Active 2004-present]

2016 WTA Championships winner and 2014 Australian Open finalist.

Slovakia's best ever female in singles, taking over from Daniela Hantuchova. Introduced to tennis at age 7 by parents, an early idol was Amanda Coetzer, the diminutive South African who reached the top ten in the 1990s.

Dominika is one of the smallest players on the tour in height. Traits she shares with Coetzer are an amazing quickness about the court, legs as sturdy as they come, and a pit bull never say die attitude wrapped in a cute blonde package. Tactically Cibulkova is an aggressive player who goes for winners and creates openings. Her small height prevents using the serve as a weapon, but every other shot she owns if offensive. Timing and strength make her dangerous-her down the line shots and swing volleys being two standout weapons. This power has earned her the name of "The Pocket Rocket."

Time and time again Dominika has proven she can beat members of the top ten and make runs in majors, making the quarters or better in all four Grand Slams. So far though she inevitably gets overpowered by those in the top 4 or 5 in these latter stages, as evidenced by her 2-6 record in GS quarterfinals.

Her magical run to the 2014 Australian Open final shot her into the top ten for the first time. On the cusp of going even higher, she struggled with poor results the rest of the year. An Achilles tendon injury early in 2015 required surgery and took her off tour for much of the year.

Solid results and an inspired semifinal finish at Wimbldon in 2016 mean she is once again knocking on the top ten door. Married after Wimbledon to longtime boyfriend Michel Navara, she will retain her maiden name on the WTA tour.

At the end of the season she capped off her season with a fairy tale finish at the WTA Championships. Domi barely survived the round robin portion with a 1-2 record. After beating Kuznetsova despite being points from defeat the tiny Slovak upset world #1 Kerber 6-3 6-4 to capture her biggest title yet. Can the little engine that could win a slam?

The chances are looking remote in 2018. Dominika fell back out of form and the top ten in 2017-finishing the year at #26. She reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon in 2018. She wasn't earning good press in reaching the last 8 however, with foes complaining of her excessive thigh slapping and a display of bad sportsmanship ib overcominh Su Wei-Hsieh in the 4th round.

Career Highlights:

SINGLES

Winner (8): 2016 - Katowice, Eastbourne, Linz, WTA Finals; 2014 - Acapulco; 2013 - Stanford; 2012 - Carlsbad; 2011 - Moscow.

Finalist (12): 2018 - Budapest; 2017 - New Haven; 2016 - Acapulco, Madrid, Wuhan; 2014 - Australian Open, Kuala Lumpur; 2013 - Sydney; 2012 - Barcelona; 2011 - Linz; 2008 - Amelia Island, Montréal.

DOUBLES

Winner (1): 2017 - 's-Hertogenbosch (w/Flipkens).

Born 26 January 1888 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Died in ????
Married Harold S Cross (1880-1936) on 14 April 1910
[Active 1907-1908]

A member of the Philadelphia Country Club, which hosted the US Women's National Championships in this era. She first entered the US Nationals in 1907, losing her first match. 1908 was notable, for she did her home club proud by reaching the quarterfinals before falling 6-3 6-2 to Maud Barger-Wallach, who went on to become champion that year.

She must have had promise, as she is mentioned as "a comer" by American Lawn Tennis in May of 1908.

After that promising result we hear no more of Miss Borda in regards to tennis. She wed to Harold S Cross. (see 1911 and 1923 Philadelphia Social Register)
