Hurlbut, William J.


Hurlbut, William J.
(1883-?)
   The playwright was born in Belvedere, Illinois, and trained to become an illustrator, but switched to playwriting with the Broadway success of his first play, The Fighting Hope (1908). He had a steady stream of plays produced in the 1910s, but did his best work in the 1920s with Lilies of the Field (1921) and his powerful melodrama of a revivalist who taps into the frustrations of a small-town wife and mother, The Bride of the Lamb (1926).
