Photos of war correspondent Marguerite Higgins on assignment in Korea by Carl Mydans for LIFE, 1950. 

"She was invariably ladylike and feminine, even when wearing Army fatigues and covered with mud, but her detractors soon discovered that the ladylike exterior covered a strong, tough woman who did not hesitate to put up a fight for something she wanted. Rival reporters found that she could be ruthless when in search of a story.”—Virgina Elwood-Akers, author of Women War Correspondents in the Vietnam War.
