Florence Barker (November 22, 1891 – February 15, 1913) was an American stage and silent film actress from Los Angeles whose promising career was cut short far too early. She began in amateur theatre in her early teens and by the age of eighteen was playing lead roles at the Grand Theatre in Los Angeles. At around this time she started acting in motion pictures and would go on to appear in at least sixty-three film productions before falling victim in Los Angeles to pneumonia at the age of twenty-one.[1][2][3]
