Six point bronze star from the Actors Fund Fair of 1892, 52 mm. Rare. The first Actors Fund home on Staten Island was dedicated in 1902. This was made possible in part by the successful 1892 Fair held at Madison Square Garden, which raised over $163,000. This was the first time that the profession was overwhelmingly accepted by society. In attendance were President and Mrs. Grover Cleveland, Mr. and Mrs. John Jacob Astor, Andrew Carnegie, J. Pierpont Morgan and Cornelius Vanderbilt.
