Pollock, Channing

(1880-1946)
   Born in Washington, he became drama critic for the Washington Post in 1898. Later he was press representative for William A. Brady (1900-1904) and for the Shuberts (1904-1906). During his long stint as drama critic for The Green Book (1905-1919), Pollock began writing plays. He was best known for his high-minded dramas of the 1920s: The Fool (1924), The Enemy (1925), and the expressionist drama Mr. Moneypenny (1928). His memoir Harvest of My Years (1943) conveys his readiness to speak out for a cause and captures his colorful career and associations.
