Chew, Caroline King Lan

Caroline King Lan (The Last Orchid) Chew; the only Chinese woman dancer in America; Campus Theatre, Berkeley, Tuesday Evening, April 30 (program)

Campus Theatre, Berkeley. [1935-?], 4 panel program with photos of the dancer on front and rear covers, later handbill-program for a Rockridge Choral appearance printed both sides laid-in. This playbill is most likely pre-1937 as Ms. Chew appeared in the film of "The Good Earth" that year and it is not mentioned in her bio here. April 30 fell on Tuesday in 1935. San Francisco-born and raised Chinese American dancer whose father founded the first Chinese newspaper in America and who graduated from Mills College. The insert appears to be a much later, though pre-1960s, performance in Rockridge.
