Dear Ms. Smith….we are contacting you from Nova Scotia, Canada in regards to finding any historical information on the World’s Women Boxing Crown events that took place in the 1930’s in the USA. A lady by the name of Elizabeth Cairns from Pictou, Nova Scotia, was boxing out of Montreal , Canada and was heading to the US to take part in the event. Where may we get info on this organization or events that were staged in the United States. We hope tp profile Ms. Cairns and write any historical article on her life. We certainly appreciate any help or direction you may offer at this time. We thank yoy and leave respectfully.
Thank you for your email. I will see what I can find in my files and get back to you. Best, Malissa
