Emma Haig was born Emma Haig McGowan on January 21st 1898, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Haig was a theater performer during the vaudevillian era, whose career included many notable plays and venues. Some of Haig’s most well-known featured parts were in the following stage performances; musical revue “Ziegfeld Follies 1916”, musical revue “Miss 1917”, the 1918 musical revue “Hitchy-Koo”, the 1919 musical romance “The Magic Melody”, the 1921 musical “Music Box Revue”, the 1922 musical melodrama “Our Nell”, the 1923 musical comedy “Rise of Rosie O’Reilly”,and the 1925 musical comedy “Tell Me More”. Haig passed away at a very young age, only 41, in Hollywood, California. In this portrait Haig gazes slightly upward and to her right. Her expression is placid and relaxed. Haig is stylistically garbed in a 1920's attire, with a floral patterned head scarf, long necklace strands of both beads and pearls, big looped earring with a diamond-obelisk shaped hanging pendent, and shibori patterned jacket. Haig's shadow is a predominant feature in the backdrop. The lower left corner of the photograph is signed "Hixon- Connelly K.C."
