Elegant and undaunted

Meredith Boyd
There's something familiar yet mysterious about Meredith Boyd's looks. She reminds you of a movie star, maybe one whose name you can't quite remember. Some of our staffers believe she looks like the feisty Sean Young, while others compare her to the glamorous Madeleine Stowe. One of our older editors saw her photo and mentioned the tragic and courageous Susan Peters, gone almost half a century.

She spent her childhood in New Orleans, went through puberty as a "fashion outcast" in San Francisco and grew up to become a beauty queen in Georgia. She can play a mean Dixieland clarinet, and she once set her hair afire while twirling a flaming baton.

Meredith BoydStill, that doesn't tell you much.

Here's what we really admire about her When she was 16, she was diagnosed with arthritis. This pretty, popular, outgoing girl was literally knocked off her feet by the disease. For a time, it robbed her of her ability to walk. She had delicate surgery and months of therapy.

 
She came through it with a strong will and a light heart. And now she's fine. She's an extraordinarily fit woman and a successful writer. She's a happily married beauty queen. And she's an increasingly prominent name in the fight against arthritis and other crippling diseases.

Ms. Boyd has had an interesting life. That's good. It was the excuse we needed to give you a look at her.
