Byron, Arthur William


Byron, Arthur William
(1872-1943)
   The son of actor Oliver Doud Byron (1842-1920), who worked with Joseph Jefferson III, James K. Hackett, John Wilkes Booth, Edwin Booth, and Kate Crehan (sister of Ada Rehan), was born in New York and began performing in his father's company. Though he never rose to stardom, Arthur Byron was regarded as a skilled light comedian. His greatest successes were in The Boomerang (1915), Tea for Three (1918), and Spring Cleaning (1923). In 1938, he was elected president of Actors' Equity, but illness forced his retirement in 1939.
