"1 Minnie Rayner - British actress in theater and in film. She was born right after the Civil War so to say she was old school is an understatement. That's why I write things down I forgot to get back with you on these. Haha."

"Thank you again for your help! I hope it doesn't take up too much of your time. If I can be of any help, just let me know. Ebay listings were helpful for some but I couldn't make out the autographed names on these ones. "
