Part of the programme, Cornwall’s Miss Lillian Ross is featured on this page and on the rest of the programme.  Miss Ross had to give up an important New York Opera career as her father did not think it proper for a young lady to follow such a path.  Miss Ross dutifully returned to Cornwall to dedicate her life to local charities.
