So hard to find photograph of lyricist Rida Johnson Young

PostSun Sep 25, 2011 2:19 pm

Has anybody ever seen what Miss Young looks like? there are GoogleImages with sheet music of hers and Victor Herberts and photo printed but doesn't say it's Rida Johnson Young. The photos look more like the singer hired to make gramophone or popularised music. Still almost impossible to find bonafide picture of this great song writer.

You could probably find some pictures by searching for her name through the newspapers at
http://www.fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html
and browsing through the results. Here's one I found after a few minutes, but it's not very good.
