Eddinger, Wallace

(1881-1929)
   The son of actors Lawrence and May Eddinger was born in Albany, New York, and made his debut at seven in Among the Pines, followed by Little Lord Fauntleroy. As Wallie Eddinger, he played child roles until the mid-1890s, then left the theatre to study mining engineering. Returning to the New York stage in 1902, he worked steadily for a quarter century as a light comedian.
