Annette Hanshaw: The Personality Girl by David Soren

Annette Hanshaw (Manhattan, October 18, 1901 – Manhattan, March 13, 1985)  was born Catherine Annette Hanshaw. A number of her family members were in vaudeville and she was brought up to love the entertainment business although she studied art and design and wanted to be an artist and portrait painter. She was an exceptionally beautiful girl and had a lovely singing voice that came across wonderfully clearly over the radio and on records at the local stations she would sing for.
