Burke, Joseph (Master)

Master Joseph Burke acted Dr. O’Toole when only seven years of age, visited American at twelve, acted at the Park theatre, New York, and after playing Young Norval in “Douglas,” led the orchestra in the overature to “Guy Mannering.” He was a clever solo player on the violin; he also sang harmonious songs. He averaged $1,200 a night for nine nights. He played Richard, Shylock and Sir Giles Overreach when a child. He is still alive in New York state, seventy-five years old.
