5x3¾ card, affixed to 6¾x4 album leaf (2 surfaces). (1884-1945) was an Irish tenor known for both his operatic voice and his popular concerts and recordings. After studying voice in Italy, he became Covent Garden's youngest principal tenor in 1907. He made hundreds of recordings, beginning in 1904, and would later be heard on radio and in sound films. He was the first to record the popular World War I song, "It's a Long Way to Tipperary," in 1914. McCormack owned estates in Ireland and Hollywood, and was active in the movement for Irish Home Rule. In 1928, Pope Pius XI made him a Papal Count, in recognition of his work for Catholic charities. Card toned with minor smear on "rs" in yours. Otherwise fine condition.
