On this page I intend to post new or updated information about the Pollard Opera Companies if and when it comes to hand. In this way, the book will always remain relevant.



On page 158 of The Pollards I have written that the death date for Maud Beatty is unknown. This has now been discovered. Maud died in London, UK, on 26 March 1959. She had married her third husband, Australian-born Sydney George Kibble, in 1920 and gave up her stage career entirely to live with him on his cattle ranch outside Buenos Aires in Argentina. Later they moved to Portuguese East Africa but after her husband's death (date unknown) she moved to London where she made her home for the remainder of her life.
