    (1907-April 27, 1929)
    Born in Bisbee, Arizona
    Died in Glendale, California
    Performer, Franchon & Marco and Hollywood Scandals
    Succumbed to complications from an illegal abortion at 22
    She was a drunk.
    She got pregnant without being married.
    As she lay dying, she named Drs. P.S. Traxler and R.S. Lanterman, both of whom had previous manslaughter charges, as the physicians who performed the botched procedure.
    The investigation into her death implicated two other starlets.
    Her parents were too poor to raise her, and she was sent to live with another family at six-years-old.
    She took her first dance lessons while in the care of her foster mother.
    The charges against both doctors were dismissed when evidence was presented that she initially attempted to terminate the pregnancy on her own.
    Her death exemplifies what can occur when a woman does not have safe, legal reproductive choices.
