Maceo Anderson
Birth: Sep. 3, 1910
Death: Jul. 5, 2001

Professional Dancer. He was the last original member of the groundbreaking tap-dance act the "Four Step Brothers". Billed in their prime as the "eight feet of rhythm", the "Four Step Brothers" started out in the 1920s performing successfully for some 30 years under Maceo Anderson's leadership. They are credited with breaking the color line by being the first black act to perform at Radio City Music Hall in New York, Chez Paris Club in Chicago, and the first to perform on television thus becoming the best known dance act in the nation. "The Four Step Brothers" also appeared in numerous motion pictures and were honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1988.
