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

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. Now, this 6-year-old stage star, “Baby VaLaire,” began dividing her time between a school room and her life in show business. It was the life she would know for the next 11 years.
