Geraldine Farrar (February 28, 1882 – March 11, 1967) American soprano singer. She had such a popular following in the 1920s that her young female fans were nicknamed “Gerry-flappers”. Robert Hudovernik, in Lost Beauties of the Jazz Age, recounts that “during an infamous train trip from New York to Hollywood, pianist Jimmy Sullivan played jazz, while Gerlandine Farrar, clad only in a negligee, danced a ‘buck and swing’ on the piano.”
