Murdoch, James E.

(1811-1893)
   The eminent actor-manager was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He made his debut in 1829 at the Arch Street Theatre in a single performance underwritten by his hesitant father. His long slow rise in the profession culminated in star engagements in the Union states during the Civil War. His 1880 book The Stage recalls anecdotes from 50 years in the theatre.
