Otis Skinner (1858-1942), a native of Cambridge, Mass., was a famed American stage actor who early in his career was in Edwin Booth's company. He played many Shakespearian roles and gained great acclaim for his role in "Kismet" (1911). He wrote extensively about the stage and was the father of actress and author Cornelia Otis Skinner. Marie Wainwright (1856-1923), a Philadelphia native, was an American stage actress who played mostly in light or comedic roles; she made the transition to film in the early 20th century, appearing in several silents.
