Curator's Corner: The Singing Sisters


During the golden age of radio and vaudeville, two sisters made quite a name for themselves as local performers. They could be found throughout the papers in the late 1920s, as they were called “one of the most popular teams of radio entertainers in the radio realm.”1 But just as quickly, their names disappeared from the newspapers and the sisters’ story would have slipped into obscurity if not for a 1996 donation by Catherine Wallisch Bauer to the History Center shortly before her death.
