A Tribute To Mary SmallThe Little Girl With The Big Voice
b.1922 Baltimore ~ d. 2007 Harlem
The recklessness of the roaring twenties was fresh in the minds of most Americans in the first years of the Great Depression. That’s why the sudden slip into economic calamity following the stock market crash was so instrumental to the evolution of our national character. Events like these can force entire societies to reflect on what’s important in life and those sentiments can often define entire generations.
This is the story of how the character of one little girl, like so many of that great generation, was shaped by those events, how she matured into one of radio’s biggest stars, and why history nearly forgot her.
To learn more about Mary and the rest of the story you'll have to browse through these blog entries which include newly discovered audio visual clips found nowhere else. A documentary is coming soon.
*Mary's name has been submitted for consideration for the 2013 Hollywood Walk Of Fame honors, hence the wallpaper. We hope to raise $30,000 on KickStarter in order to pay for the installation of the star.
