Adele Rowland (1883-1971), American actress and singer, ‘whose ingratiating comedy methods are largely responsible for the popularity of Katinka.’ (The New York Dramatic Mirror, New York, Saturday, 15 January 1916, p. 2)

Katinka, a musical play by Otto Hauerbach, with music by Rudolf Friml and Lyrics by Otto Hauerbach, opened at the 44th Street Theatre, New York, on 23 December 1915, with Adele Rowland playing Mrs Helen Hopper, one of the principal parts.
Adele Rowland made two trial recordings for the Victor label, with Rudolf Friml at the piano, in New York on 20 January 1916: ‘I Want to Marry a Male‘ (from Katinka), and ‘Your Photo,’ neither of which appear to have been published. Miss Rowland did, however, make several more recordings for Victor in 1919, one of which was ‘When You See Another Sweetie Hanging Around (That’s the Time You’ll Want to Come Back to Me).’
