Marian Anderson signs on a program photograph
Magazine Photograph signed: "Marian Anderson". B/w, 7¼x9¾, affixed to hardstock. Marian Anderson (1897-1993), a contralto who sang both operas and spirituals, began her concert career in 1924. In 1939, the Daughters of the American Revolution refused to allow Anderson, a Black American, to perform in Washington, D.C.'s Constitution Hall. In response, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt resigned from the D.A.R. and arranged for a concert at the Lincoln Memorial. Anderson, who debuted with New York's Metropolitan Opera in 1955, became a permanent member of the company. In 2005, she was honored on a 37-cent postage stamp. Signature light and in poor contrast but legible. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
