"Frank Morrell, the 'California Boy,' made his first appearance as a boy soprano with Cleveland's Minstrels in Los Angeles, CA.
This was followed by an engagement with Selle's Bros. Circus with whom he went to Australia.

Returning to his native heath he next appeared at the Bella Union Theatre in San Francisco, subsequently playing an engagement
with Haverly's Minstrels in the same... city.

Later, Mr. Morrell appeared with success in several burlesque and farcical attractions, and at various times was of the vaudeville

After a five-year tour of England and Africa he returned to the United States and in 1906 formed one of the original members of
"That Quartette," and continued with them until 1908..."
