DALY, Augistin, dramatist, born in Plymouth. N. C., 20 July 1838. His education was received partly in Norfolk, Virginia, and in the public schools of New York City. He began his literary career as dramatic editor of the "Sunday Courier," in New York City, in 1859, and continued as such on the "Sunday Courier," the New York "Times," the "Sun," the "Express," and the" Citizen," until 1869, when he opened the Fifth Avenue theatre on Twenty-fourth Street. This building was destroyed by fire in 1873, and three, weeks later he opened another theatre, formerly the "Globe," in Broadway, under the former name. In 1879 he established Daly's theatre in Broadway, near Thirtieth Street. He has three times taken his entire company to California, twice to England, and once to Germany and France, where the merits of his management and training were warmly acknowledged. His career as a dramatic author began in 1862 with an adaptation from the German of Mosenthal's "Deborah," and since then he has produced original plays -- among them "Divorce," "Pique," "Horizon," "' Under the Gaslight," and many adaptations from French and German authors. Most of his productions have won popular success. Mr. Daly has also, for several seasons, managed the "Grand Opera House " in New York. His noted achievement is the organization of combinations of players, complete scenic presentations, and elevation of dramatic purposes. He is an enthusiast and a hard worker in his profession, devoting all his time to the success of his theatre, a great reader, and a well-informed student of the dramatic literature of many nations.
