About the Namesake Sybille “Syd Koff” Cooper, 1913‑1998:

The logo portrait of Sybille first appeared in the sports section of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, May 6, 1936, illustrating the article: “Syd Koff – Bensonhurst’s One-Girl Track Team.”

As a teenager, Syd became a world-class track and field athlete and went on to eventually win the U.S. National Championship in hurdles, 1940. In 1984, she became co-founder, with son Steve, of the Sybille Gallery of Art and Framing in Greenwich Village, New York.
