  Benzol: Women's World Championship Challenger in 1927, 1935 and 1937. She was also British Women's champion in 1919 and 1936.
Apr-18-08  percyblakeney: Edith Holloway (1868-1956) participated in many tournaments in the 1920's, facing opponents as strong as Euwe, Tartakower and Colle. She also took part in the unofficial chess Olympiad in 1924 (in the official events women weren't allowed before the 1950's), where she won against Potemkin:

In 1927 Holloway participated in a tournament in Hyeres, where she finished last but drew Isidor Gunsberg in what ought to be his last chess event. A photo from the tournament, with Gunsberg (71) and Holloway (59) seated in the middle: (Chess Notes 3606)

A page with some facts on Holloway and her family:

Apr-18-08  percyblakeney: Gunsberg should have been 73 on that photo and not 71, by the way. Holloway's win against Potemkin (it's safe to say that the Russian team wasn't too strong, one of the reasons being that the country didn't exist at the time...):
