American actress on stage and film, Fannie Ward was probably most famous for her apparently successful efforts to appear forever young. Born circa 1868, she made her stage debut in 1890, was in Hollywood films 1915-1919, and called the perennial flapper, played teenagers and even a child in late middle age. Her jewelry and her social life were also of note. Collection consists of five scrapbooks of clippings and photographs of Fannie Ward, arranged chronologically, and one scrapbook of typed research notes by Glendon R. Good on her career.
