Bolton, Guy
(1884-1979)
   Guy Reginald Bolton was born in England to American parents and studied architecture before beginning a playwriting career. Collaborating with George M. Cohan and George Middleton on Hit-the-Trail Holliday (1915), Bolton had his first success, after which he almost exclusively collaborated on books for some of the most popular musicals from 1915 to the 1960s, including Very Good Eddie (1915), Lady, Be Good (1924), Oh, Kay! (1926), Girl Crazy (1930), and Anything Goes (1934), among others.
