Korrmoit of II In Period.
Sir Henry Irving was the foremost
English actor of his period. Bom in
1838 he early turned to the stage and
after 1S71 held the indisputable pre
miership In England, if not In the
world. He did not belong merely to
England, for his art swayed America
also. After 1883 Irving made tours of
the United States at intervals of two
or three years, and he was admired
and loved by American piysers as no
other foreign actor ever has been.

In 1S95 Irving was knighted by
Queen Victoria, the crowning honor of
his life. His knighthood pleased him
even more as a tribute to his art and
the position occupied by the stage than
as a personal honor.
Irving leaves two sons and a widow.
He had, however, been virtually separ
