Blanche Hamilton Fox (Mezzo-Soprano) (Boston, USA ? - ?)
Born Blanche Hamilton Fox. She was a leading mezzo-soprano of the Boston Opera. First she studied at the Academy of Notre Dame in Rosbury, then continued her education at the New England Conservatory in Boston. Probably she made her debut in 1906 at the Teatro Cressoni of Como in G. Donizetti’s ‘’Favorita’’. In Italy she appeared on the stages as Bianca Volpini and made only two recordings there for Odeon.
