Kate Warne: The World’s First Known Private Investigator
Eugène François Vidocq, the worlds first known private investigator, began the business in 1833. He has been credited with applying criminology, ballistics, and much more to an investigation. And since then the business has blossomed.
However it was not until 1856 that the field occupied its first woman; Kate Warne. Warne worked for Pinkerton Detective Agency where she uncovered a plan to assassinate President elect Abraham Lincoln while he was traveling from Baltimore to Washington D.C. These plans were revealed through a series of undercover missions performed by Warne during which she posed as a southern belle to gain entrance to social gatherings.
Her flirtatious and dense demeanor allowed her to not only confirm that there was in fact a plan to assassinate Lincoln, but also to uncover the details of how and when this plan was to occur. Because of Warne, Pinkerton (her employer) was able to warn Lincoln, and act covertly while transporting him safely to Washington D.C.
Is It A Man’s World? Why Women Might Be Better At It.
1. People tend to think that private investigations are a man’s field, which makes a woman the perfect confidant and detective! When a woman is doing surveillance, people are much less likely to be suspicious of her than they would a man.
2. Women are usually more willing to go undercover, or role play, and really adapt the character they are portraying. This comes in handy when acting as “bait” to see if a man will cheat on his wife/girlfriend.
3. Women are more organized, detail oriented, and seem to be better at multitasking.
4. Break the private investigators glass ceiling! This is an increasingly popular field for women to get into, and for good reason!
