Helen Rowland

Helen May Rowland (/ˈrlənd/; 1875–1950) was an American journalist and humorist. For many years she wrote a column in the New York World newspaper called Reflections of a Bachelor Girl. Many of her pithy insights from these columns were published in book form, including Reflections of a Bachelor Girl (1909), The Rubáiyát of a Bachelor (1915), and A Guide to Men (1922).

Namesakes[edit]

She is often confused with the late American vaudevillian and singer Helen Rowland, who was later billed professionally as Helene Daniels. Born as Helen Hannah Rubin (September 28th, 1908, Bronx, New York - October 15th, 1992, New York), she started in 1927 as a vaudeville performer, opposite Ohio native "Muriel Malone" (born c.1910/1911 - died April, 1980, Greenville, South Carolina) as duo "Rubin and Malone", and sang on radio and recordings during the 1930s and early 1940s.[1] Child actress Helen Rowland was often credited as "Baby Helen Rowland", distinguishing her from both the journalist and the singer.
