ELINOR FAIR was born in Richmond, Virginia, in 1903, and in childhood moved with her family to Los Angeles, Cal., where she attended St. Mary’s Academy. For a time she was also a student in the Central School at Seattle. At one time dainty Miss Fair thought she would be a violinist, and went to Leipzig, Germany, to study. The World War brought her back to America, and the lure of the stage brought her before an audience for the first time on the stage of the Alcazar Theatre, in Los Angeles, where she appeared as a dancer. Her beauty and talents attracted the attention of motion picture producers, and she was cast with William Farnum in « The End of the Trail. » She was in the cast of « The Miracle Man, » playing the invalid sister. Miss Fair is a splendid dancer and pianist. She is 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighs 120 lbs., and has brown hair and eyes.
