Short Biography: Marizieh Gail (1908-1993) was the daughter of a Persian-American marriage. Her parents, Ali-Kuli Khan and Florence Breed, were called upon by 'Abdu'l-Baha to unite the East and the West. Marzieh, too, sought to promote greater understanding between the different cultures. She received her MA in English from the University of California at Berkely in 1932 and later worked as the first female reporter on the staff of a Tihran newspaper. Fluent in English, French, Persian, and Arabic, and having some capability with Russian, she also worked on various Baha'i translations, including one of the Kitab-i-Aqdas.
