AUSTIN, Texas – Former Associated Press fashion editor and foreign correspondent Nadeane Walker Anderson has died. She was 91.
Anderson's daughter said Tuesday her mother, who used her maiden name Nadeane Walker as her byline, died Monday in Austin.
Anderson became AP's European fashion editor in 1947, shortly after marrying AP correspondent Godfrey Anderson in Paris. She interviewed some of the biggest names in fashion at the time, including Coco Chanel and Christian Dior. Yves Lanvin even named a dress after her.
Born in Canton, Texas, Anderson worked for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram after graduating from North Texas Teacher's College in 1942. She enlisted in the Women's Army Corp and joined The Stars and Stripes newspaper in Paris in 1945.
She also worked for the International Herald Tribune and the Dallas Times Herald.
