Illington, Margaret


Illington, Margaret
(1881-1934)
   Born Maud Light in Bloomington, Illinois, she created her professional name by combining syllables from Illinois and Bloomington. She first acted in New York in 1900 in The Pride of Jennicho, then spent a season with a stock company in Richmond, Virginia. She returned to New York to perform with E. H. Sothern in If I Were King (1901). As Henrietta in The Two Orphans (1904), she achieved her greatest acclaim. Other well-regarded performances include A Maker of Men (1905), His House in Order (1906), The Thief (1907), and Kindling (1911). She retired after A Good Bad Woman (1919). In 1903, she married Daniel Frohman, but divorced him in 1910. She later married Major Edward Bowes.
