(November 2010) Alma Marie Sullivan Reed (1889–1966) was an American journalist. While working in Mexico in the 1920s, she fell in love with the governor of Yucatán, Felipe Carrillo Puerto; however, he was assassinated a few days before their planned marriage. The ballad "Peregrina" is based on their romance. Reed remained interested in Mexico and in Carrillo Puerto's causes; she was eventually awarded Mexico's Aztec Eagle award for her work on behalf of Mexico's culture and arts. Later in life, Reed was a supporter of the artist Jose Clemente Orozco and wrote a biography of him, Orozco (ISBN 0-87817-204-1). Contents 1 Early years 2 Journalism career 3 Art Patron 4 Notes 5 References Early years A San Francisco native, Reed was born Alma Sullivan into an Irish Catholic family in 1889. Her marriage to businessman Samuel Payne Reed ended in annulment after he became ill. Outspoken, adventurous and bohemian, she carried what one observer described as the “mystic ailments that sometimes befall the people” of California. Journalism career She rose to fame as a journalist while writing for the San Francisco Call. An advocate for the disenfranchised, she was responsible for helping change the state's death penalty laws after she wrote a series of articles in 1921 about the death sentence given to a 17-year-old Mexican boy convicted of murder. Her articles led to the state commuting his sentence. Her writing won her an invitation by Mexican President Alvaro Obregón to be his guest in Mexico City. While traveling through the Yucatán, she wrote another series of articles on the thefts of Mayan artifacts for the Peabody Museum at Harvard University by American explorer and archaeologist Edward Thompson. The articles led the museum to return some of the objects to Mexico. Art Patron The New York Times took notice of the young journalist and hired her to continue reporting from Mexico and later the Middle East. By 1928, she settled in New York City and dubbed her apartment “the Ashram” to honor the Hindu hermitage where sages lived in peace among nature and to pay homage to Mahatma Gandhi's pacifism. Early after establishing the studio, Reed met Orozco, who had been living in Manhattan and doing poorly in making a living. She immediately fell in love with his work and gave him a one-man show in September 1928. Not long after the exhibition, she rented a portion of the top floor of the building on East 57th Street and established a formal gallery called Delphic Studios. She promoted many Mexican artists but she remained the principal patron for Orozco. She also exhibited the Mexican-themed watercolors and oils of Los Angeles artist Leo Politi in 1937. The one-man exhibit helped launch Politi's career as an author and illustrator of children's books. Notes Schuessler, Michael K. Introduction to Peregrina. References Reed, Alma. Peregrina. Ed.
