Florence Welch worked as a newspaper journalist and activist for women's suffrage in Topeka, Kansas, later moving to California and marrying Wagner, then a prominent artist and magazine writer. In 1929 the pair founded "Script," a left-leaning, weekly literary film magazine. Lifelong Socialists and advocates for progressive causes, the Wagners' "Script" gave a voice to blacklisted screenwriters (including Dalton Trumbo and Gordon Kahn) and prominent leftists, including Sinclair, Max Eastman, and William C. deMille. After Wagner's death Welch would remarry early aviator James L. Breese, living with him in New Mexico and California until her death in 1959.
