Vesta Tilley (1864 - 1952) was one of the highest paid vaudeville performers of her day. She was a world-renowed male impersonator, most famous for playing (with a satirical bent) the roles of somewhat foppish young men. During WWI, Vesta and her family helped considerably with the war effort, running a recruitment drive, selling war bonds, and performing in hospitals. Her husband was knighted for his services. Vesta Tilley was actually her stage name, Tilley as a nickname for Matilda, and Vesta from a brand of safety matches.
