Gladys Rice (1890-1983)
Last updated: 31.07.22
p_ricegladys.jpgGladys Rice (née Gladys Hillsburg) was an American soprano vocalist born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
She made numerous recordings in the 1910s and 1920s using pseudonyms such as Dolly Vernon, Ethel Andrews, Rachael Grant and Rachel Grant. Rice was also a vocalist with the Paul Whiteman Orchestra.
It is somewhat surprising, given the sheer number of recordings (70+ and counting) with so many partners and works by so many composers, that so little can be found about her by Internet searching.

Surfers are welcome to contribute any further information about this performer.
