Virginia Tracy (1874–March 4, 1946) was an American adventurer, stage actress, novelist and screenwriter. In the newspaper world she wrote primarily for the New York Tribune.
At 20, in 1894, she wrote one of her first professional reports after accompanying a caravan of actors led by Maurice Barrymore traveling cross country on train. In the 1920s she wrote several large scale epics for the Fox Film Corporation.
Tracy's Broadway credits as an actress included Escape This Night (1938), Sweet Mystery of Life (1935), Post Road (1934), Jigsaw (1934), And Be My Love, (1934), Lone Valley (1933), Bulls, Bears and Asses (1932), Wild Waves (1932), and Up York State (1901).
