Helen Muir (reporter)
Muir was born in Bronx, New York, named for her mother, Helen Teresa Flaherty. She credited her grandfather, John Henry Augustine Flaherty with teaching her how to read at a very young age. She was of Irish descent, and her maternal great-grandfather, Geoffrey O'Flaherty of Waterford, and great-grandmother Katherine Fitzgerald of County Clare, had left Ireland during the Irish Potato Famine. The family stopped using the "O" and was later known as "Flaherty."
She moved to Miami, Florida in 1934. She wrote about Florida as a columnist for the Universal Service syndicate from 1935 to 1938 and for the Miami News and the Miami Herald until 1965. She also wrote freelance articles and books.
