Clare Hollingworth Google Doodle on her birthday – 10/10/11

Posted: October 10th, 2017 | No Comments »

Today Google has devoted their search engine to the great female foreign correspondent Clare Hollingworth. Hollingworth was known for her reporting in World War Two and also her trips to China. She ended up deciding to live in Hong Kong. She died back in January at a wonderful 105! I wrote a small tribute to her and her Hong Kong days for The Literary Hub here. Today is her birthday – she was born on the 10/10/11 (what a great day to be born for a China Hand – I hadn’t realised before!!)
