Mitchell, Maggie


Mitchell, Maggie
(1832-1918)
   Margaret Julia Mitchell was born in New York City. She began acting at 19 and quickly developed a specialty in young boy's roles. For a quarter century, beginning in 1861, the tiny, energetic actress played Fanchon in Fanchon, the Cricket, a dramatization of a story by George Sand. Her portrayal of Jane Eyre (1885) was admired, and Maggie the Midget (1888) was created for her, but the public continued to demand Fanchon until she retired at 58.
