p_murphyelsie.jpgAll that can presently (October 2023) be gleaned about Elsie Murphy from sheet music covers and by Internet searching is that she was presumably an American actress/singer who has been featured on 3 works published between 1912 and 1917.
Her portrait on the left is taken from When It's Apple Blossom Time in Normandie (1912) music by Tom Mellor, co-authors Harry Gifford & Trevor Huntley, published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
The front cover of Say a Prayer For the Boys ''Out There'' (1917) music by Alexander Marr, words by Bernie Grossman and published by Joe Morris Music Company, New York, USA, indicates that she was partner of a double-act, Murphy & Klein.
Surfers are welcome to contribute any further information about this performer.
