|Contextual Notes||Nicknamed the "lady who never smiles" for her serious facial expression while dancing, Harriet Hoctor danced in vaudeville and burlesque and later performed as a featured dancer for the 1929 Ziegfeld Follies. She opened her own ballet school in Boston in 1941.|
Charles "Tiny" Burnett was known for his popular orchestra leadership in the Orpheum Circuit vaudeville theaters here from 1915-1933. Over the years, Burnett amassed a large collection of souvenir photographs from the performers with whom he worked. Many of the photographs are studio portraits signed with fond notes by the performers, who range from novelty acts and circus attractions to opera singers and silent film actors.
