BIO:
Edwin Thomas Booth (November 13, 1833 – June 7, 1893) was a 19th-century American actor who toured throughout the United States and the major capitals of Europe, performing Shakespearean plays. In 1869, he founded Booth's Theatre in New York. Some theatrical historians consider him the greatest American actor, and the greatest Prince Hamlet, of the 19th century.  His achievements are often overshadowed by his relationship with his brother, John Wilkes Booth, the man who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln.  
*  It is worth reading Edwin's Wiki page , which includes a most fascinating story about saving Robert Lincoln's life just about a year after his brother John assassinated Robert's father, Abraham Lincoln.
