First Short Paper: WHO DID THEY SEE? Prepare a short report of 250-300 words (no more than one page double-spaced in 12-point size type) about the career of one actor (male or female) who performed in Chicago between 1833 and 1903 . DO NOT write about anyone already discussed in lecture or Sway segments such as Joseph Jefferson, James McVicker, John Rice, Edwin Forrest, Junius Booth, Edwin Booth, John Wilkes Booth, Laura Keene, Frank Chanfrau, Thomas Rice, William Burton, Eddie Foy (from the Iroquois Theatre Fire), Laura Dainty Pelham or anyone named in the Sway segments. Find someone else from legitimate theatre (plays), opera, operetta, minstrel shows or vaudeville. Your report should include the person's name, birth and death dates, where he/she was born or raised, how he/she became involved in theatre and the type of theatre he/she did (plays, minstrel shows, opera, vaudeville, etc.). If you can find the name of a theatre in Chicago at which he/she performed, even better
