Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mary McCormic (Nov 11, 1889, Belleville, Arkansas - February 10, 1981, Amarillo, Texas) was an American operatic soprano and a professor of opera at the University of North Texas College of Music (1945-1960). For more than a decade (early 1920s to late 1930s), McCormic was among the most famous sopranos in the world. She was most known for her leading roles with the Paris National Opera, the Op ra-Comique (14 years), the Monte Carlo Opera, and the Chicago Civic Opera (10 years). A onetime obscure housewife in Arkansas, McCormic rose to stardom filled with a colorful personal life - four marriages and four divorces (men of no resemblance to one another), almost a fifth, a big dollar lawsuit defense for assaulting an unauthorized female biographer, boom and bust personal wealth, witty humor, and brush with royalty.
