ANDERSON, Mary, actress, born in Sacramento, California, 28 July 1859. She was brought to Louisville, Kentucky, when an infant, and was left fatherless at three years of age. She was educated in the Ursuline convent of that City, and, when thirteen years old, resolved to enter the dramatic profession. She received a training in music, dancing, and literature to that end, and, after taking a course of dramatic lessons in New York, on the advice of Charlotte Cashman, and pursuing elocutionary studies at home for a year longer, she appeared as Juliet at Macauley's theatre, in Louisville, 27 November 1875, and subsequently in other parts. She played then in St. Louis, and next in New Orleans, where she was received with enthusiasm. She became a favorite actress in the principal cities of the United States, playing Lady Macbeth, Parthenia in "Ingomar," Pauline in "The Lady of Lyons," Galatea, and other characters. She played in 1883 and the following seasons in England, where she was greatly admired for her beauty and refined acting. See "The Stage Life of Mary Anderson," by William Winter (New York, 1886).
