Kathleen Eloise Rockwell (1873–1957), best known as "Klondike Kate," gained fame as a dancer and vaudeville star during the Klondike Gold Rush, where she met Alexander Pantages who later became a very successful vaudeville/motion picture mogul. She gained notoriety for her flirtatious dancing and ability to keep hard-working miners happy, if not inebriated.
