“My work began in California, where I played with Mr. Anderson, of the Essanay Company. Then I left the pictures for the regular stage and vaudeville, but I came back to the pictures. Yes, I love the work. It is fascinating – always something new, and boundless opportunities for improvement.” — Clara Williams in 1912.
“No, I do not care for the East. I am praying for the snow to fall early, for then we shall go to California. I long for Los Angeles, my home city, and for all the West – there is nothing here to compare to it. I’m terribly homesick, all the time.” — Clara Williams in 1912
