Nevada Semenza, the journalist of the China Press (1931)

Aside from her duties as the woman's page editor at the China Press, Nevada Semenza wrote interesting articles on Shanghai's city life and culture. Her extravagantly titled "Avenue Joffre, Pulse Of The Russian Community, Informal, Tawdry, Yet Picturesque as a Ship in Full Dress" from July 1931 was, perhaps, the first full-page story covering the growth of the Russian colony in the French Concession. The year it was published Semenza married the city editor at the China Press and became Mrs. Christian Sutton.
