From Roger Smith

Before There Was Christine Jorgenson, Before There Was Chaz Bono...

...There was Anna John Budd, as we see in this montage of newspaper
coverage, compiled onto an 8 x 10 glossy, and autographed to nobody
else but Mabel Stark, in 1934, with the tantalizing sentiment, "Lest
you forget".

Where I found this is a secret that will die with me.

This is amazing! Do you have any other information about Anna John Budd, or whether or not these were common? Any extra information at all would be much appreciated :)
