Cayvan, Georgia
(1858-1906)
   Born in Bath, Maine, Cayvan began her career as a reader on lyceum programs throughout the New England states. In 1879, she made her musical stage debut in H.M.S. Pinafore with the Boston Ideals and her legitimate debut a month later, 10 April, in Sketches in india, also at the Boston Theatre. Her New York debut came a year later at the Madison Square Theatre when she played Dolly Hutton in Hazel Kirke. She moved into the title role in 1881 and toured with the company for two seasons. In 1882, she originated the role of Liza in The White Slave, and there followed a long succession of heroines, including the title role in May Blossom (1884). She played the female comic in Sweet Lavender in 1888 and in its 1893 revival.
