Anna Case Draws a Crowd

When Fred Renard, husband of Anna Case's music teacher Madame Augusta Ohrstrom-Renard, took over management of the twenty-seven-year-old soprano in 1915, he began placing ads in all of the music trade journals, There can be no doubt that he was successful in getting work for the young concert artist as she criss-crossed the country several times over the next decade and beyond.

Here is a sampling of some trade ads from 1915 through 1918. I wonder what Mr. Renard would have done in the age of Facebook and Twitter!
