For Mr Jimbo...who asked about her.

MADDEN, "BABA" (Mercedes Madden)

Born in 1920
Married Morey Price Lewis on 28 June, 1941 in Chicago.

Morey won the 1939 and 1946 Canadian Chmps. In 1939 he beat Robert Madden, Baba's brother. Though know for her tennis, Baba was held in higher regard in squash. She won Massachuesetts Squash titles in 1958-1959 and 1970! A squash event called the Baba Lewis Invitational was named after her.
