Davenport, Fanny

The name Fanny Davenport was for years a household word. Young collegians put her photographs on the mantelpiece or in the edge of a looking glass. Born into a famous theatricality family, she brilliantly played parts, and appearing in dramas by Sardou was popularly known as the American Sarah Bernhardt [sic].
