Abstract

Ruth Etting (1897-1978), a native of David City, NE, left Nebraska for Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles to become a "torch singer", recording artist, Ziegfeld girl, and movie star. The archives contain video recordings, sheet music, recordings (LP's, cassette tapes, and reel-to-reel tapes), photographs, newspaper clippings, magazine articles, scrapbooks, and correspondence which chronicle her career in the 1920's and 30's.
