James Collier (b.1836) and Maggie Mitchell (1832-1918)

Margaret Julia "Maggie" Mitchell (right) began as a child actress and became famous for the lead role in "Oliver Twist." Her strength was piquant comedy. Mitchell appeared in New Orleans in 1860 in an adaptation of George Sand's "Fanchon the Cricket." The lead role - that of an elfin outcast - was her most famous. She successfully managed her own company. James Collier (left), the husband of Maggie Mitchell, was also an actor. He debuted in Newark, NJ, in "La Tour de Nesle." In 1859 he made his New York debut at Niblo's Garden as Rolando, opposite Charlotte Cushman. Collier toured with Maggie Mitchell in supporting roles. Posing at the C. D. Fredricks studio, both appear to be in costume and in character.

1862 circa 5 years
