A Shaker Heights actress who for years starred in one-woman performances in which she depicted famous American women has died at age 88. Jane Caldwell Hamburger Powers who was admitted to Greenlawn Health Center in Concord Township four years ago, died there Friday of complications from Alzheimer's disease. Mrs. Powers born in Cleveland, received much of her stage training at her mother's Caldwell Studio of Dramatic Arts and at Kent State and Ohio State Universities. Her forte was writing her own scripts, making the costumes and portraying significant and famed females, including Dolly Madison, Mary Todd Lincoln, Emily Dickinson and Martha Washington. In a review in 1972, Plain Dealer critic Glenn C. Pullen described her as a 'prolific playwright-actress: and her performance as Lincoln's wife was called "a beautiful, inspiring character study of a brilliant but often maligned American patriot." During her career, Mrs. Powers was honored twice for distinguished performances by the National Freedom Foundation at Valley Forge, PA. One of those prizes was for her characterization of Dolly Madison, one of the most popular portrayals in her White House Series. She is survived by her husband, Henry L. Powers. Services will be tomorrow at Acacia Masonic Memorial Park. - Plain Dealer, January 16, 1989.
