Sept. 14, 1910, Alice Stebbins Wells

Sept. 14, 1910: The Herald reports Alice Stebbins Wells’ appointment as the first policewoman in Los Angeles. The Herald treated her with far more dignity than The Times, which found her to be somewhat amusing.

Wells will be honored with a luncheon on Sept. 15 at 11 a.m. at the Police Academy Lounge. Tickets are $35 and reservations are required. Further information is here.
