Dorothy Kingsley
Last updated: 10.10.23
It is surprising that so little is known about this performer considering the large number of compositions and recordings located. All that can presently (September 2023) be gleaned about Dorothy Kingsley from sheet music covers and by Internet searching is that she was presumably an American actress/singer who has been featured on 11 works published between 1897 and 1911. She also made at least 6 recordings in 1908.
Surfers are welcome to contribute any further information about this performer.
