Aida Overton - Walker

         Aida Overton was already an accomplished actress and dancer when she married George Walker. Aida started her career in the chorus of 'The Black Patti Troubadours' minstrel group where she met George Walker in 1898. She became William's and Walker's leading lady and choreographer starring in Cakewalk, Buck and Wing and Eccentric dance exhibitions and would lead another famous vaudeville act, 'Aida Overton-Walker and her Panama Girls' in 1911.

    After her husband became too ill to perform in 1909, Overton often dressed up in his costumes and played George's role in 'Bandana Land,' which was the last production of the Williams and Walker Company. Overton later danced with the Black Patti Troubadours and on Broadway with the Smart Set Company.
