Virginia Lee Corbin (December 5, 1910 - June 4, 1942)1 was an American silent film actress. Corbin began her career as a child actress in 1916, when she was billed as Baby Virginia Corbin,2 and went on to become a youthful flapper in the 1920s. She was one of the many silent stars that would not make it in the sound era, and retired from acting in the early 1930s.3

She married Chicago stockbroker Theodore Krol in 1929 and they had two children, Phillip and Robert. They divorced in 1937 and shortly after she married another Chicago stockbroker, Charles Jacobson.4

She died at age 31 from tuberculosis.
