Grand Duchess Kira a guest at dinner

January 12, 1930

Grand Duchess Kira of Russia, the younger daughter of Grand Duke Kirill, pretender to the Russian throne, was the guest of honor at a dinner this evening hosted by the Duchess of Richelieu at her home, 140 East End Avenue. More guests were invited for a musicale afterwards, where Irma de Baun, soprano, sang.
Earlier today, the Grand Duchess attended a lecture on the plight of the Russian exiles which Mrs. Henry P. Loomis "gave at the Colony Club."
