PORTRAIT OF STAGE ACTRESS MARY HAMPTON (BY CELEBRITY PHOTOGRAPHER MORRISON IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS)

MARY HAMPTONThis cabinet card portrait features slumping actress Mary Hampton photographed by Chicago celebrity photographer William McKenzie Morrison. Miss Hampton was a pretty woman and apparently a very successful actress of her day as there are many references to her, as well as accolades about her,  in theatrical magazines and newspapers. A photograph of her appears in Broadway Magazine (1898). The New York Times (1899) printed a large illustrated portrait of Miss Hampton in her role as Gertrude Ellingson in the play "Shenandoah". The book "American Women Theatre Critics: Biographies and Selected Writings of Twelve ...."  by Alma J. Bennett (2010) praises Hampton in her role as Rosamund. It is asserted that she played the part "true to the high standard of womanly power and gentleness". The reviewer also compared her favorably to the great actress Helena Modjeska.  The New York Times (1931) printed an obituary when she died at age 63.
