Anna Chandler (July 4, 1884 – July 10, 1957) was an American vaudeville actress and mezzo soprano singer of popular and light classical songs.[1]

She was born in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania. On November 13, 1900, Chandler married Jack Curtis, whose birth name was Jacob Zinn, in Manhattan, New York. Curtis was a booker for Keith Albee, and later, a theatrical agent. They had one child, Beatrice Curtis, who became an actress and whose first husband was the vaudevillian actor Harry Fox of the dance the foxtrot.

Chandler was a headline artist for the Orpheum Circuit. She sang songs in Hebrew and Italian almost exclusively during her career as a headliner on the Orpheum Circuit.[2]

Anna Chandler died at age 73 in El Sereno, California.
