This cabinet card portrait features American stage actress Clara Morris (1849-1925). This photograph reveals that she was pretty and busty and appears to have enjoyed wearing gaudy jewelry. Note her earrings and collar pin. Clara Morris was born in Toronto, Canada and her real name was Morrison. She grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. She traveled to New York in 1870 as a member of Daly's company. She was a sensation in L'Article 47 (1872) and acted in many other plays.  After 1885, she focused mostly on literary work. Her works included "A Silent Singer" (1899), "The LIfe of a Star" (1906), and "Dressing Room Receptions" (1911). In her book "Life on the Stage: My Personal Experiences and Recollections" (1911) she describes her meeting with John Wilkes Booth, the assassin of President Abraham Lincoln. This cabinet card was photographed by George Rockwood (1882-191) whose studio was located in New York City. Rockwood was born in Troy, New York and graduated from college with a PhD, reportedly either from the University of Chicago, or Columbia University. At 21 years of age, he was a newspaper reporter for the Troy Daily Times and at age 23, he was managing editor of the Troy Daily Post. He began working as a photographer in St. Louis and in 1857 opened a studio with his brother Elihu in New York City. He has been credited with bringing CDV's to America. His obituary in the Washington Post reports that Rockwood photographed  more than 350,000 people. To view more photographs by Rockwood, click on the category "Photographer: Rockwood".
