    During her stay in Paris in the early 1900s, Laura Clifford Barney heard of the Bahá'í­ Faith and studied its tenets with May Maxwell, the renowned Bahá'í­ teacher. Laura embraced the nascent Faith and pursued a lifelong career of service to humanity. This paper is about one of her most remarkable achievements: Some Answered Questions is the descriptive title of the book she has compiled of answers to the questions she presented to 'Abdu'l-Bahá.
