Maud Rosenbaum (January 13, 1902 – May 3, 1981) was an American track and field athlete and tennis player who won a bronze medal in the shot put at the 1922 Women's World Games. She was the daughter of a wealthy shoe manufacturer, Emmanual Rosenbaum. In 1927 she married Baron Giacomo Giorgio Levi, in Paris, France, and later moved to Rome; the couple had a daughter. In Italy Baroness Levi became a prominent tennis player, and in 1930 she returned to the United States to compete in tennis. By 1933 she won four tennis titles, including the New York State Tennis Championship; next years she was ranked 7th female player by the U. S. Lawn Tennis Association. She divorced Baron Levi in 1934, and in 1935 married H. Walter Blumenthal, a New York stockbroker.[1][2][4]
