   The actor, director, and producer (brother of the dancer Isadora Duncan) began his career in San Francisco, where he was born, making his debut in 1893 at Stockman's Theatre. After years on the road, he made his New York debut in Richard Mansfield's Henry V company in 1900. He continued performing even after he lost his eyesight in the 1920s.
