Glenna Collett Vare of Providence, RI won the Eastern Women's Golf Association Championship six times, in 1922-24, 1927, 1932 and 1935. Much has been written about Glenna; she was clearly the greatest American Woman Golfing Amateur of the 20's and 30's. She won the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship six times, and was runner-up twice. She won the North/South six times, and the Canadian Women's Amateur twice.
