Source for actresses Victoria Woodhull & Anna Cogswell? : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Does anyone know a source for information on San Francisco actresses of the 1850's? I'd like to know specifically about Victoria Woodhull and Anna Cogswell. Victoria Woodhull was the first woman to run for President of the United States in 1872, so a great deal has been written about her. However, very little has been written about her life in San Francisco. (She returned to San Francisco for a visit during a lecture tour in 1874 or 1875.) Even less is known about Anna Cogswell. If anyone in San Francisco is researching these two actresses who appeared in the "Corsican Brothers" and "New York by Gaslight," I'd greatly appreciate hearing from them.
