Derwent, Clarence


Derwent, Clarence
(1884-1959)
   Born in London, Derwent had been acting in England for 13 years before making his New York debut in 1915 opposite Grace George in Major Barbara. He enjoyed a long distinguished career in both countries, playing as many as 500 roles. Having performed in all but three of Shakespeare's plays, he could claim as his favorite role Shylock in The Merchant of Venice. He served two terms as president of Actors' Equity and was president of the American National Theater and Academy* (ANTA) from 1952 until his death.
