LIMA — The Allen County Museum will host “What Ever Happended to Baby VaLaire?” at 2 p.m. Aug. 24.

The 1920s and 30s were the golden years of theater and vaudeville. By 1932, at the age of 6, VaLaire Rilee was already a known performer, having appeared on stages throughout the United States and Canada since she was 14 months old.
