Are You My Mother?

Was attempting to follow suit on BBO a couple of nights ago.

At one point i noticed that one of my opponents had "Goren" written in his profile.  With tongue in cheek, I asked him what that meant?     He politely informed me that Goren was "The Father of Modern Contract Bridge". 

OK.   I then asked him who the mother was?  (After all, if modern contract bridge has a father, then wouldn't it, also, have a mother?)  Alas, my nice opponent didn't answer this question but, instead, politely asked me to "please BID!"

This kind of got me to thinking; "who IS the Mother of Modern Contract Bridge"? 

 So I thought I'd ask: 

What person would you select for the title of "Mother of Modern Contract Bridge" and why?
