Palmer, A. M.

(1838-1905)
   Connecticut-born Albert Marshman Palmer studied law at New York University, but chose to pursue political opportunity through a friendship with New York's Internal Revenue collector Sheridan Shook, who ultimately made Palmer manager of the Union Square Theatre, where he produced Rose Michel (1870) and The Two Orphans (1874). The theatre failed at vaudeville, so Palmer established a repertory company to rival those of Lester Wallack and Augustin Daly. The company scored successes with several new plays, but a falling out with Shook led Palmer to take over the Madison Square Theatre, where he built a reputation for high quality productions of both American and European plays, the most successful of which were Anselma (1885), Dr. Jekyll andMr. Hyde (1887), Partners (1888), Beau Brummel (1890), Alabama (1891), Lady Windermere's Fan (1893), New Blood (1894), Trilby (1895), and His Absent Boy (1896). Palmer served as president of the Actors' Fund of America from 1885-1897. During his years of declining health, he served as Richard Mansfield's manager and as manager of Charles Frohman's Herald Square Theatre.
