Mary Anderson, a native of Sacramento, California, first appeared on the New York stage two years after her 1875 debut in "Romeo and Juliet." She was later hailed as a Shakespearean actress in England and Europe as well as in America. She married Antonio F. de Navarro (d. 1932) in England on June 17, 1890, and soon thereafter abandoned the stage.
