A full-body character portrait of Edith Gresham as Aunt Eller, with butter churn. Edith Gresham took the role of Aunt Eller at some late point during the original Broadway production of Oklahoma!, approximately 1946-1948. Since her name does not appear in any of the programs for the play available in Bryn Mawr's Special Collections Department, it is impossible to confirm the exact dates of her involvement, or to determine whether she first appeared in a touring production in this role. Since she appears in numerous photos in the collection it is likely she played this role for more than one season.
