Merivale, Philip

   Born in Rehutia, near Mankipur, India, the actor was educated in England. He abandoned a London business career in 1905 in favor of acting. He performed with English actor-managers Frank Benson, Sir Herbert Tree, and others. He played his first New York engagement in 1910 in The Scarlet Pimpernel and returned to America in 1914 in Pygmalion with Mrs. Patrick Campbell. Thereafter, he made his career in American theatre, with notable successes in the 1930s.
