Before the current apartment was built, 1726 was the home of early screen actors, John H. Richardson, and his wife Louise Lester at the time of the 1920 US census. Jack Richardson was born in New York City in 1883. He was an experienced stage actor when he began in the film industry in 1911 playing opposite his wife at the time, Louise Lester in her “Calamity Anne” comic westerns. Eventually, he was typecast as a “heavy” and later in a variety of minor roles. His work was prolific, and he was involved in an astounding 618 productions during a career which finished at the end of the 1940s! He passed away in 1957 in Santa Barbara, California. Louise Lester was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1867. She entered film in 1911, but she didn’t achieve stardom until she appeared in the role of Calamity Anne in a series of western comedies in 1912-1913. Her work reduced to supporting parts in the 1920s and she retired from the film industry soon after the sound era began. Over her career, she had appeared in 162 productions. She passed away in 1952 in Hollywood, California.
