Annie Louise Cary

Annie Louise Cary (October 22, 1842 – April 3, 1921) was an American singer.

She was born in Wayne, Maine, and studied in Milan. She made her debut as an operatic contralto in Copenhagen in 1868. She had a successful European career for several years, singing in Stockholm, Paris and London, and made her first New York appearance in 1870. She only once returned to Europe for a brilliant Russian tour, and until she retired in 1882, she was the most popular singer in America.

She married Charles Monson Raymond on June 29, 1882.
