Purely speculative: What if Marjorie Lawrence had not contracted polio?

How would that have impacted the careers of Traubel, Varnay, and Harshaw?

If Lawrence had continued, would she have lasted or blown out? Maybe later ended up as mezzo?

She did start as a mezzo, and sang zwischenfach such as Ortrud, Kundry, and Brangane, but the recorded evidence doesn't really show much of a mezzo coloring or overall vocal orientation.
