Belle Jennings Benchley led the San Diego Zoo to an international showplace when she became the world’s first and only female zoo “directrix” in 1927.

For 26 years she was the manager, organizer, promoter, fundraiser, author, and an international leader in animal behavior and zoo administration. In 1925, she was a divorced former teacher needing support for herself and son. She was hired as the Zoo bookkeeper and began taking lunches in and around the zoo. When she found problems, she reported them, often to Zoo founder and Board President, Dr. Harry M. Wegeforth. In 1927, after four undesirable Zoo Managers, Wegeforth appointed Benchley Manager and Executive Secretary—the Zoo’s top position. “Go ahead and run the place,” he said, “you’re doing it anyway.” And she did, until her retirement in 1953. Benchley loved animals and wanted San Diegans to appreciate them. Learn more about Belle Benchley here: https://goo.gl/jxgCfm
