    My mother played the great Ivy Culver Ramsey in the late 1950’s in Jamaica, and won. She has the trophy to prove it and spoke much of the event. Although at the time it was a small local competition, it was a great accomplishment for my mother. A Google search of her name recently led me to a 1954 Daytona Beach Morning Journal article, where I first saw her photograph. The lady in the long sleeve in this photograph appears to be her. Thanks, this photograph basically indicates that Ivy Culver Ramsey was one of the ‘greats’ in tennis in her time. I am also now realizing why my mother made such a big deal of that historical event. She indicated that Ivy was so vexed at loosing that day, she threw away her racquet before leaving the court.

    Great blog!

    I run a women’s tennis history forum, and was led here by searching for Ivy Cover Ramsey. Great story Yvonne! I hope you don’t mind my including it .

    I have pieced her story together here:

    Was Ivy Ramsey even in the US in 1945? She first shows up there in 1953 by most accounts. Perhaps I am mistaken, or the lady in the ATA photo is not her. Are we sure of the date?

    At any rate thanks for a a unique blog. I will visit often.

    Ivy Culver Ramsey Rosenthal continued to enjoy tennis. She and her late husband Stanly lived in Brentwood, Long Island, NY. My wife taught with Ivy in the Brentwood School District for many years. We traveled with Ivy and Stanley to her native home of Jamaica, where she was a national hero for representing her country and winning in Pan Am games. Ivy has retired after a long career of teaching Physical Education and Tennis. Brentwood recently renamed the High School Gymnasium in her honor.
