Biography. 87


Minnie Palmer's Unique Record.

The bright little actress who closed the year at the Hollis Street
Theatre is a thorough American at heart, but yet cosmopolitan in
reputation. She is one of the few who have won plaudits among all
the English speaking people of the globe, and her return to Boston
after a three years' absence therefore warrants especial mention.
Born in Philadelphia, March 31, 1865, Minnie Palmer received
her early education at the Convent of the Sacred Heart, Manhatten-
ville, N. Y. But with her studies she indulged in the pleasures of
private theatricals and the applause that admiring friends bestowed
upon her amateur efforts led her to seek a professional opening.
Her debut was made in a juvenile part at the Park Theatre, Brook-
lyn, in 1876, and there her success was so marked as to lead her
parents to prepare her for future advance by completing her edu-
cation in Vienna. To this study and practice on the Continent is
due her proficiency in the German language, as well as in singing and
dancing, which leads her to anticipate a future starring tour in the
land of the Teutons. But while abroad. Miss Palmer received a
cablegram offering her the part of Dorothy in Daniel Druce, at Booth's
Theatre, New York, and this she accepted. Succeeding that came
an engagement under Henry E. Abbey's management at the Park
In the latter playhouse she appeared in Engaged, Cricket on the
Hearth, Champagne and Oysters^ etc., following those plays with a
special engagement, under the management of David Bidwell in New
Orleans, as Louise in The T700 Orphans. This last character was
widely different from any she had hitherto assumed, but she made
an instant hit. Then came her starring seasons in Minnie Palmer's
Boarding School, and following that in My Sweetheart. Her
recent tour of Great Britain and Australia is well known, while her
later vivacious impersonations of the leading characters in The
Schoolmistress, Pert, Little Treasure, Ring and Keeper, and My
Brother's Sister have received warm praise. Miss Palmer's success
has been not only profes.sional but also social, the little lady winning
abroad the friendships of the best people and in America gaining the
distinction of being the only actress privately received at the White
House by Mrs. Cleveland.
