Lowell, Helen

(1866-1937)
   Helen Lowell Robb was born in New York City and began her acting career at 17 in the title role of the operetta Iolanthe. By 1885, she was performing in New York. She was most remembered as Miss Hazy in Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch (1903), among many roles, some performed on tours abroad. In The Lottery Man (New York Times, 7 December 1909), she had "the dry, acrid humor of real comedy, never once overdoing or underdoing, and creating a sense of sympathy underneath the laughter." After 1934, she made her career in motion pictures.
