Davies, Acton


Davies, Acton
(1870-1916)
   Born in St. John's, Quebec, Canada, the preeminent drama critic of the 1890s came to New York in 1887, joined the staff of the New York Evening Sun in 1890, and moved into drama criticism there in 1893. Green and Laurie called him "the master of the verbal stiletto" (1953, 116). With a change in management at the Sun, Davies left reviewing and became a press agent for the Shuberts.
