‘Teddy [sic] Gerard Objects to Publicity Given Her Case While in Reno (Special Dispatch to The Call)

‘RENO, Nev., Oct. 15 [1909]. – After elegantly furnishing a cottage in Holcomb street in this city, Mrs. Theodora Raymond, known in New York as Teddy Gerard, the actress, has returned to New York. She has taken her friend, Miss Broderick, with her, and her attorney, James Boyd, reports that she will not return to this city, although it was her intention to sue for a divorce after staying here the required length of time.

‘Mrs. Raymond spent more than $2,000 furnishing her home in this city and her other expenses during the month were about $1,400.

‘Attorney Boyd says that undue publicity caused Mrs. Raymond to leave Reno. He declares that the reporters and correspondents in Rena are driving many wealthy divorcees from the city by their persistent practice of publishing facts concerning their plans.’ (The San Francisco Call, San Francisco, California, Saturday, 16 October 1909, p. 11d/e)
