Abbie, 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. Abbie Pankhurst of New York first married Herbert 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, Abbie Pratt herself became a member of the royal class, when she married Prince Alexis Karageorgevich of Serbia. At that wedding she took the name Daria, Princess Karageorgevich, as a royal name consistent with Serbian names. She remained a princess until her death.
