Sophie Tucker (1884-1966) was a Russian-born popular American entertainer. She gained fame as a performer in vaudeville and burlesque in the World War I era, and continued her career for many years in nightclubs, films, radio and television. The collection consists of Sophie Tucker's manuscript and typewritten drafts and notes, used as the basis for her published autobiography "Some of these Days" (Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday, Doran, and Company, 1945). The text of the book differs considerably from the drafts.
