Katharine Drexel, two ways

As a freelancer, it’s great to be able to pitch a story on something I’ve already written about to another publication. Late last year, The Daily News here in Philadelphia asked me to write a piece about Cordelia Frances Biddle’s biography of her cousin, St. Katharine Drexel. Knowing St.Katharine’s importance to New Orleans, I then asked The Advocate if they’d be interested in an article as well. Both received big displays when they ran. I’m posting both stories here to show how it’s possible to write these two pieces without duplication.

Compare and contrast here: Philadelphia versus New Orleans.
