Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Emma Carus (March 18, 1879 - November 18, 1927) was a contralto singer from New York who was in the cast of the original Ziegfeld Follies in 1907. Her given name was Emma Carus. She frequently sang in vaudeville and sometimes in Broadway features. One columnist described her as a sort of combination of Sophie Tucker and Fay Templeton with a little of Eva Tanguay and Eddie Foy thrown in for good measure. She appeared in the drama, Rally Round the Flag, at the Union Square Theatre in August 1897. The venue at 50 East 14th Street was owned by Benjamin Franklin Keith and Edward Franklin Albee II, who purchased the theater in 1893 to host vaudeville performances. Carus was described as a ballad singer prior to her performance at the Olympia Roof Garden, Broadway (Manhattan) between 44th Street and 45th Street, in September 1897.
