The Theatre, April, 1902. Margaret Anglin, as Giuditta in “The Twin Sister.” 

Anglin (Canadian, 1876-1958) was equally effective in Greek tragedies, Shakespearean plays, and contemporary dramas. She graduated from the Empire School of Dramatic Acting, New York, in 1894. Her acting skills brought the attention of theatre impresario Charles Frohman who provided her with the opportunity to make her professional stage debut in 1894 in the Bronson Howard production of “Shenandoah.”

An American Dog Abroad, and The Foreign Dogs He Met. Frank Pope Humphrey. Alpha Publishing Company, Boston, 1896.

"When I am naughty, my master calls me "Anthony!" When I am good, which is most times, he says "Tony." So though my real name is Anthony, if I should put it at the head of this true account of my travels, nobody would know it was I, and I wish everybody to know the traveler and writer is I."
