The inaugural edition of this tournament was in January of this year, but October became the standard month to hold it. The Pan-American became a prestigious tournament as the de facto championship of Latin America. Margaret Osborne DuPont captured plenty of hearts during this edition. Her beautiful volleying was not enough in women's doubles as a tiring Louise Brough Clapp dragged down their team in the final. Pauline Betz Addie and Bundy Cheney lobbed Brough Clapp to death down the stretch as she had trouble all week with the high altitude of Mexico City.

After being cancelled in 1942 and 1943, this staple of the eastern grass court circuit returned, with 13 out of the top 15 nationally ranked US women.
