Olive Ann Alcorn

Olive Ann Alcorn (1900 – 1972) was an American dancer, model, and silent filmactress of the 1910s and 1920s. She is better remembered today for the numerous nude photographs of her from the era than for her film work.
Olive Ann was born in Stillwater, Minnesota. She graduated from the Denishawn School of Dancing and Related Arts, and was a member of the Denishawn Players which toured across the nation putting on performances in theaters and auditoriums.

After 1928 little is known about Olive Ann Alcorn, though it is believed she continued her involvement in dance. She married twice, her first husband being Louis H. Scherer (divorced 1925) and her second husband being Harry Singer (married May 22, 1928).

During her younger years she posed for photographer Alexander Stark (Alta Studios). Here are various photos taken by Stark.
