p_jordanm.jpgAll that can presently (May 2022) be gleaned about Mary Jordan from sheet music covers and by Internet searching is that she was presumably an American contralto who recorded 5 works between 1911 and 1915.
All those works were for the Edison labels. Her portrait on the left is taken from an article on her performing at the Century Theatre, New York.
Surfers are welcome to contribute any further information about this performer.
