ARNOLD, PAULA (1885–1968), Israeli columnist. Born in Vienna, the daughter of Leon *Kellner, Arnold taught at girls' high schools until 1933, when she settled in Palestine. She wrote Austria of the Austrians (1914) and translated novels and plays into German. For the centenary of the birth of Theodor *Herzl (1960), she prepared an English translation of his Altneuland ("Old–New Land") which was published in Israel in that year. She also wrote Birds of Israel (1962) and published Israel Nature Notes (1965), a selection of articles written for the Jerusalem Post.
