Detroit: C.A. Newcomb, .
Softcover. Very good. Viola V. Vincent was an entertainer who billed herself as a diseuse (monologist), performing a "mosaic of song and story" in which she spoke and sang in the accent and costume of women of different nations. This packet of materials produced by her agent was used to book her appearances at women's clubs and similar community organizations. She is described as "exquisite," and "an outstanding artist" who will attract paying audiences and help organizations raise funds. Programs from previous engagements, newspaper reviews, and testimonials from clubs are provided (most from Michigan, where she lived, but also from New York and New Jersey), and a brochure illustrated with half-tone photos shows her in costume as various characters. A contemporary newspaper article describing her as "a coloratura soprano of repute" notes that "the artist in private life is Mrs. C.A. Newcomb III of Birmingham [Michigan]."
