Cameron, Beatrice

(1863-1940)
   Born Susan Hegeman in Troy, New York, Cameron acted with various companies, including that of Robert Mantell in Called Back (1884). In 1886, she joined Richard Mansfield's company, performing with him in Prince Karl at Madison Square Theatre. She continued as his leading lady, divorcing her first husband George R. P. Phoebus to marry Mansfield in 1891. In 1889, she was the first to play Nora in Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House in English in New York. She played Raina to Mansfield's Bluntschli in Arms and the Man (1894), the first production of a play by George Bernard Shaw in America. Cameron retired after 1900.
