Taylor, Charles A.

(1864-1942)
   A native of South Hadley, Massachusetts, Charles A. Taylor ran away from home, supposedly after reading a biography of P. T. Barnum. He became a successful producer and playwright of second-rate melodramas intended for rural audiences, several of which starred his wife, Laurette Taylor. Among his plays to appear on Broadway were The Derby Mascot (1894), A Wife in Pawn (1900), The Queen of the Highway (1903), The Child Bride (1903), Through Fire and Water (1903), The White Tigress of Japan (1904), The Royal Chef (1904), Tracked Around the World (1904), and Yosemite (1914).
