Biography

Although the 1932 AAU meet was combined with the Final Trials, Wilhelmina Von Bremen won the AAU title but did not finish first in the Trials. The reason for this apparently contradictory statement is that Ethel Harrington did not qualify for the 100m final but was permitted to run and, although she finished first, she could not be declared the AAU champion. Thus, Miss Von Bremen, a graduate of Western Women’s College (Ohio), won the only AAU title of her career.

Personal Best: 100 – 12.0 (1932).
