Laurie co-wrote the book "Show Biz: From Vaude to Video" (1951) with Abel Green and wrote Vaudeville: From the Honky-tonks to the Palace(1953).Aleen Bronson's name appears in the Library of Congress copyright catalog as one of the authors of the one-act comedy Two-Gat Maguire (1930).|
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.
