BELMONT Mrs. Oliver Hazard Perry Belmont, who by dynamic forcefulness carried through whatever project she undertook, was one of tho most colorful personalities who ever graced the social scene In New York and Newport. With a zest that startled the moro conservative and stolid elements In the New York society of last century, she swept everything before her In pursuit of her alms. Actually, she swept herself into the most exclusive of society itself, overriding all opposition and forcing even the Astors to capitulate. Marries Vanderbllt She was born Alva Smith, daughter of a cotton broker, In Mobile, Ala. After her debut In Mobile, she was irmrrled to \VIIlIam K. Vanderbllt and stormed tho social colony at Newport.

The mansion was given to her by her husband as n birthday gift. Then came her romance with Oliver H. P. Belmont, a sensation of the 1890s. .She was divorced from Van- derbllt and married Belmont. She continued her career as nonchalantly as she had begun It, unconcerned over gossip. Suffrage Worker After Belmont's death, Mrs. Belmont decided to essay a public career. There were no "Idle rich," she said, because no one could be wealthy and remain idle. She plunged Into the suffrage movement nnd for years was one of Us foremost leaders. In 1909 she. founded the Political Equality League and Immediately be- co-mo ft. central figure In the woman's suffrage movement. At the same time a social and eccllasHcal storm broke over her head "because of her work and because of the first marriage of her daughter, Consuelo Vanderbllt, tho now Mrs. Jacques Bnlsn'n. Consuelo WUH married to the Duko of Mnrlborough -and the union was later annulled by tho Vatican. Society talked and talked of tho part Mrs. Belmont played In the ducal marriage and its subsequent disruption. Quits Native Land Mrs. Belmont gave up her public career and her residence In America 12 years ago to make.her home in Eu- rqpo, but she visited here frequently and was one of the strong financial supporters of the National Woman's Party.
