Card with Photos of 3 Women in Capitolian Trio, Augusta Maine; Lena Beane; Louise B. Robinson; Harriet H. Matthews




Cardstock piece, approx. 5-1/4" x 4/1/4" advertising the Capitolian Trio, Augusta, Maine, comprised of three women: Lena Beane, Pianist and Organist; Louise B. Robinson, Vocalist; and Harriet H. Matthews, Dramatic Reader.


I've had a very difficult time finding anything about the Capitolian Trio or its individual members.  There are city directory listings for Miss Lena Beane as a piano and music teacher, dating from the 1880s era in Augusta, Maine, but I can't seem to find her in any Census.  I'm having a similar problem with the other two women.


If you have any information on the Capitolian Trio or Lena Beane, Louise B. Robinson or Harriet H. Matthews, I would sorely love to hear from you!


Hopefully you will enjoy this memento of Maine's music past.  Thanks for stopping by!
