Bringing the past to life with colour

Clara Louise Kellogg

Clara Louise Kellogg
Clara Louise Kellogg was an American opera singer, the first U.S.-born prima donna and the first American singer to achieve success in Europe.
This photo is from the Mathew Brady collection, and dates from sometime during the American Civil War. Kellogg wasn’t directly involved in the war, but gave an account from the point of view of a civilian in New York, in her Memoirs of an American Prima Donna, in 1913.
