Mary Louise Juneau, or “Weezie” as she was known, was a long-time physical education teacher in the Lake Shawano region of Wisconsin and starred on her high school team in 1937. Most of the photos appear to be from the 1940s through the 1970s. Many show “Weezie” in action shots on golf courses. Others show teammates and competitors. As a group, they provide documentation of the changes in golf fashion over forty years. Some of the other images show Juneau engaged in boating, fishing, swimming and other outdoor activities. Several of the later color photographs show her playing golf in California and in the Bahamas. The clippings begin in 1938, Juneau’s sophomore year in high school and continue throughout her adult life; most report on her involvement in regional tournaments near Lake Shawano including many played at Shalagoco (Shawano Lake Golf Course).
For a short time in the 1970s, Juneau was married to George W. Kenote, a leader of the Menominee Tribe and long-time officer with the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs. She died in 2003 at the age of 85.
A nice visual and documentary history of an amateur women golfer’s forty plus years on the links.
