Margaret Conroy

Margaret (Academy Award® nominee Helena Bonham Carter) is Robert’s older sister and the matriarch of the Conroy family. She closely follows Robert and Stubby’s progress in newspapers and through regular letters to and from Robert. 


Margaret sees Stubby as almost an extension of her brother’s personality, keeping humor and warmth in his life through combat.

History

June 1917 – New Haven, Connecticut

The 102nd Infantry Regiment – part of the 26th “Yankee” Division – was drilling on the grounds of Yale University. Private First Class J. Robert Conroy noticed a small brindle mutt wandering around the field, watching the Soldiers and searching for scraps of food. Conroy and his fellow doughboys developed a fondness for the dog, giving him a name that matched his unassuming personality and short, constantly-wagging tail: Stubby.
