1911 Montage of Celebrities
Andrew Carnegie gave ladies of Hanford funds to make a library, something he loved. It was built in 1905. Though time has changed the building into a museum, the Hanford Carnegie Musuem board does an annual Edwardian Tea as a fundraiser. This time Silvia Gonzalez S. was contracted to write a short play featuring celebrities of the time: Andrew Carnegie, Booker T. Washington, Harriet Tubman, and one of the Wright brothers Wilbur Wright. Included in the mesh were silent screen stars from Hollywood which is only three hours away: Lily Elsie, Billie Burke, Marie Doro, Ethyl Clayton, and Maude Fealy.
