"Miss Pullman Weds," Chicago Times-Herald, 30 April 1896

Elite weddings were major social events, well covered in the Chicago press and that of other cities. Few were as widely covered as that of Frank O. Lowden and Florence Pullman, George Pullman's daughter and, as the New York Times noted, the young woman whose job it was to name Pullman cars. Mrs. Lowden's trousseau came from America's most famous retail establishments. The guest list was a who's who of Chicago's most famous families joined by her father's business and political associates.
