Press reports concerning a motor accident Edith Rosenbaum experienced in 1911

Edith L. Rosenbaum Reported Hurt in Automobile Accident
A number of the daily papers this morning have the following press dispatch from Rouen, France: "Rouen, Monday: – Miss Edith Rosenbaum, an American, was seriously injured today in an automobile accident while on her way to this city from Paris. A German merchant named Loewe, who was driving the car, was killed."

At the time of going to press, Women’s Wear had received no direct cable absolutely identifying the Edith Rosenbaum referred to in the report as the well known and popular fashion expert and correspondent of this paper. Miss Rosenbaum’s mother, however, starts for France on the Mauretania tomorrow but at the time of going to press had not received any direct cable advice, either.

It will be sincerely hoped in the trade that the accident is not so serious as the press reports would indicate.

Miss Rosenbaum has not been feeling well for some time and several weeks preceding the fashion openings had gone to Tyrol, where she had been resting up in order to return to Paris to represent her varied interests in that city. Women’s Wear received a cable from her on Wednesday, Aug. 16, but that is the latest report from her. At that time she had returned to Paris and had attended the first day’s openings of the great couturiers.

If the unfortunate accident is verified as serious, it will be a great shock to Miss Rosenbaum’s many friends here and all will sympathize with her in her trouble. She has been very successful in Paris in the work she has taken up in the last 18 months. With every opportunity before her to achieve a splendid success, to be injured just at the opening of the new season is most unfortunate. If she is not seriously hurt, her host of friends here and in Paris will be overjoyed.

Mr. Loewe, with whom Miss Rosenbaum was automobiling, had recently inherited a fortune from his father, a big gun maker, and had taken up automobiling as a pastime and, it is said, owned a number of very powerful racing cars. It is thought that the accident was due to his ambition to drive fast and his not being a thoroughly experienced driver. - Women's Wear Daily, 22 August 1911
