Ethel Barrymore

By random chance, I have found two articles in Toronto newspapers with news about actress Ethel Barrymore. The articles are over two decades apart!

The first is from the July 6 1923 Toronto Globe:


The second is from the December 12 1944 Toronto Daily Star, reporting that she had successfully fought off influenza:


Ethel Barrymore (1879-1959) was a member of the Barrymore family of actors; she is the grand-aunt of actress Drew Barrymore. While in England as a young woman, she met Winston Churchill; he is rumored to have proposed to her. After her divorce from Russell Colt in 1923, as described above, she never married again.
