- Eloise Owens Strothers (1920-1991) was a Philadelphia municipal employee, labor activist, and singer known for over two decades as the "Grand Songbird of Elkdom." The Eloise Owens Strothers papers, 1945-1991, largely document Strothers's career as a soloist lyric soprano and interest in musical performance; there is less about her labor activism, Civil Rights involvement, and community service. The collection includes programs, photographs, newspaper reviews, performance announcements, letters, telegrams, and cards.
