Albert Carroll (1898-1970) was a fascinating performer who is sadly lost in the shadows of the past. Hirschfeld made a number of drawings of the popular impressionist/actor, who appeared in such shows as the Grand Street Follies and The Garrick Gaieties. Although he included male impersonations in his repertoire, he seems to have been more celebrated for his female characterizations.  Albert Carroll’s ability to combine camp satire with an illusion of glamorous femininity can be viewed as a direct link to contemporary drag performers.
