Lee Morse

(November 30th 1897 - December 16th 1954)

Born Lena Corinne Taylor in Cove, Oregon in 1897 her family toured Idaho as the "Taylor Family Concert Company" prior to her birth earning enough money to buy a ranch in La Grande, Oregon. In 1908 after losing their family home to bank foreclosure the Taylor clan moved to Kooskia, Idaho where Lee would first preform professionally at the local theater. By 1920 Lee separated from her husband of five years to pursue her singing career first on the Pantages circuit before touring in Raymond Hitchcock's 1923 musical "Hitchy-Koo". Miss Morse began her recording career singing with the Pathé/Perfect label in 1924. Lee's problems with alcohol caused her to loose the biggest role of her career when she was unable to perform for the Broadway opening of Ziegfeld's "Simple Simon" on February 18th 1930. She was replaced by Ruth Etting.
