Janet Flanner (1892-1978) was born in Indianapolis. By the time she left the United States in 1922, she had already begun a career as a journalist for a local newspaper.
Flanner settled in Paris where she became a prominent figure in the circle of American artists and intellectuals who resided there between the two world wars. As a reporter and war correspondent for The New Yorker magazine, she wrote the column "Letter from Paris" for almost five decades. Flanner's work in the aftermath of WWII included coverage of the Paris liberation and Nuremberg trials.
