Ruth Draper

1936

“It was always an event when a performer of the stature of Ruth Draper came to Ottawa. An enormously gifted, world-famous monologist, she could create a whole world of characters with her voice and body language. Newly arrived in Ottawa, I was fortunate that a great lady of the theater consented to sit before the camera of a fledgling photographer.”
