Royle, Edwin Milton

(1862-1942)
   Born in Lexington, Missouri, Edwin Milton Royle attended Salt Lake City's Collegiate Institute, Princeton University, the University of Edinburgh, and Columbia Law School. He gave up the legal profession to act in his first play, Friends (1892), with his wife, Selma Fetter Royle (1860-1955). As a playwright, he was versatile, writing in every style from farce and musicals to tragedy. Among his 30 or so produced plays are My Wife's Husbands (1903), Marrying Mary (1906), and Launcelot and Elaine (1921). Royle's most remembered work is his melodrama The Squaw Man (1905), which depicts the noble suicide of a Native American woman to protect her white husband.
