CHIEF SILVER TONGUE - PHOTOGRAPH SIGNED CIRCA 1951 - HFSID 156758

 

CHIEF SILVER TONGUE
Color postcard in long head dress, signed on verso
Photograph signed on verso: "Chief Silver Tongue". Color, 3½x5½. Captioned in lower margin. Dated (unknown hand): March 30, 1951. It is difficult to separate fact from legend in regard to Chief Silver Tongue, aka Oscar Norton, a fine tenor singer who starred in the Indian Ceremony at the Dells of Wisconsin for many years. Was he of Sioux origins, or, as he told a Florida reporter when he retired to that state, a Houpa Indian from northern California? Did he hold a law degree, as he often told onlookers who treated him condescendingly? He was married to prominent stage actress Corona Riccardo until her death in 1917. This fascinating Native American merits further research. Slightly worn at corners. Lightly soiled on both sides. Otherwise, fine condition.
