Biography

Daria, or more properly Mrs. Thomas Huger Pratt, won her bronze medal in 1900 by shooting 53 for nine holes. Mrs. Pratt would probably have preferred the proper title, for she travelled in the highest social circles. Daria Pankhurst of New York first married William Wright and lived in Cleveland for several years. Her second husband was Thomas Huger Pratt, who suffered an early death several years after the Olympics. Pratt was quite wealthy and the couple spent much of their time in Europe, often socializing with royalty. In 1913, Daria Pratt herself became a member of the titled class, when she married Prince Alexis Karageorgevich of Serbia. She remained a princess until her death.
