Cornelius Ambrosius Logan

LOGAN, Cornelius Ambrosius, dramatist, born in Baltimore, Maryland, 4 May, 1806; died on Ohio river near Wheeling, Virginia, 23 February, 1853. He was of Irish parentage, and was educated for the priesthood at St. Mary's college, but entered a shipping-house, made several trips to Europe as supercargo, and subsequently assisted Paul Allen in editing the "Baltimore Morning Chronicle." Afterward he became connected with William Leggett in an unsuccessful attempt to establish a penny paper in New York city, and then became a dramatic critic in Philadelphia. Soon afterward he adopted the stage as a profession, appearing in tragedy in Philadelphia in July, 1835, but later preferred comedy, which he played in the first Bowery theatre, New York, in 1828, and, after appearing in Canada, was called to Philadelphia after the death of Jefferson to fill his place. He built here a theatre, which was destroyed by fire. He then removed to Cincinnati in 1840, where he became a pioneer theatrical manager, residing there until his death. He was a bold defender of the stage against pulpit attacks, and his reply to a sermon by Lyman Beecher was widely copied. He wrote several successful plays, including "Yankee Land" (1834); "The Wag of Maine" (1835) ; "The Wool-Dealer," written for Dan Marble ; "Removing the Deposits," "Astarte," an adaptation of Shelley's "Cenci," "A Hundred Years Hence," a burlesque, and a comedy entitled "Chloroform." He also wrote various tales and poems, one of which, "The Mississippi," attracted favorable notice.--His daughter, Eliza, actress, born in Philadelphia, 18 August, 1829; died in New York city, 15 January, 1872, was educated at Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and made her debut at the age of eleven in Philadelphia. In 1850 she appeared in New York as "Pauline" in "The Lady of Lyons." In 1859 she married George Wood, a theatrical manager, bought Wood's theatre, Cincinnati, Ohio, and, retiring from the stage, removed to that city. Subsequently Mr. Wood bought Wood's museum in New York.--His son, Cornelius Ambrose, physician, born in Deerfield, Massachusetts, 6 August, 1836, was educated at Auburn academy, and served as medical superintendent of St. John's hospital in Cincinnati, and subsequently as professor in the hospital in Leavenworth, Kansas In 1873 he was appointed United States minister to Chili, and he was afterward minister to Guatemala, and again to Chili in 1881, remaining there until 1883. He was editor of the " Medical Herald," Leavenworth, Kansas, for twelve years, and he has edited the works of General John A. Logan (1886), and contributed to the London "Lancet." His publications are "Report on the Sanitary Relations of the State of Kansas" (Lawrence, 1866); "On the Climatology of the Missouri Valley" ; and "Physics of Infectious Diseases" (Chicago, 1878).--Another daughter, Celia, journalist, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 17 December, 1839, acted with her sister Eliza at an early age, and was subsequently educated in London. She became a correspondent of American journals and wrote for magazines. During the civil war of 1861-'5 she resided in Milan, Italy, translating the war news for newspapers. Afterward she settled in Washington, where she became associate editor of "The Capital." She has written several dramas, including " An American Marriage " (1884). In 1872 she married James F. Connelly.--Another daughter, Olive, actress, born in Elmira, New York, 16 April, 1841, made her debut in Philadelphia in 1854, and went to England in 1857, where she was graduated at a female college. She married Henry A. Delille in April, 1857, but was divorced in December, 1865. She reappeared in New York at Wallack's theatre in 1864 in "Eveleen," a play of which she was the author. She retired in 1868, and since then has been a lecturer, principally on woman's rights and other social topics, and has contributed largely to newspapers. After her retirement from the stage she married William Wirt Sykes in 1871, who died in 1884, and while he was United States consul at Cardiff, Wales, corresponded with American periodicals under her maiden name. She has written plays, lectures, and books, the latter including "Chateau Frissac" (New York, 1860); "Photographs of Paris" (London, 1860) ; "Women and Theatres" (New York, 1869); and "Before the Footlights and Behind the Scenes: a Book about the Show Business" (Cincinnati, 1870).
