|Contextual Notes||Jessie Reed appeared in the Florenz Ziegfeld's Midnight Frolic (1919) and in the Ziegfeld Follies as a featured performer (1921-1924). In the 1920s, Reed's succession of marriages to two millionaires and then the heir to a fortune gained her notoriety as a gold digger. In all, she married five times (twice to fellow performers), but none of the marriages lasted long. Reed died in poverty at the age of 42. Her daughter Ann de Brow became a Ziegfeld girl after her mother's death.|
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.
