Willard, E. S.
(1853-1915)
   Born in England as Edward Smith Willard, he honed his acting skills in villain roles with American touring companies, first in The Middleman (1890). Then he branched into comedies including J. M. Barrie's The Professor's Love Story (1892), John Needham's Double (1892), The Rogue's Comedy (1896), The Physician (1897), David Garrick (1900), and The Cardinal (1902). He established the Edward Smith Willard Repertory Company to produce revivals of plays from the first decade of his career.
