All that can presently (July 2022) be gleaned about Aileen Crater
from sheet music covers and by Internet searching is that she was an American actress/singer who has been featured on 2 works published between 1904 and 1905.
Her portrait on the left is taken from T'was Enough to Make a Perfect Lady Mad
(1904) music by James B. Mullen
, words by Vincent Bryan.
Of interest is The Tale of a Monkey
(1905) music by Leo Edwards
, words by Vincent Bryan and published by Vincent Music Co
, which was briefly used in the Broadway production of The Wizard of Oz:
(1903). It may have been planned as a duet for Aileen Crater and Fred Stone
who she later married.
