Hayman, Al

(1851?-1917)
   Known in theatre history as one of the six men who created the Theatrical Syndicate, Hayman may be considered its actual founder, according to M. B. Leavitt (1912, 267), who had pioneered the circuit concept in the west while Hay-man worked for him. Hayman took the idea to Klaw & Erlanger, and the Syndicate was born in 1895. As his health declined during the decade before his death, he left the management of his business to his brother Alf Hayman (1865-1921), who was born in Wheeling, West Virginia. He worked for Charles Frohman, first as publicity man and then as general manager of Frohman's interests.
