FENNO, William Augustus, actor, born in Boston, Massachusetts, 1 March 1814; died in New York City, 19 February 1873. His early life was spent with his father's family near Boston, but, at an early age, a love of adventure led him to ship as a sailor on board a merchantman on a voyage round the world. After an extended cruise he studied for the stage, and made his first appearance at the age of seventeen at the Bowery theatre, New York, as snake in the "School for Scandal." He appeared in Philadelphia, 5 October 1848; at the Arch Street theatre, as Romeo, visited California in 1850, and went to England in 1864. His provincial tours were numerous and extended.
