John McCullough
Birth: Nov. 14, 1832
Death: Nov. 8, 1885

Actor. Along with Edwin Forrest and Edwin Booth, he was one of 19th century America's greatest and most celebrated Shakespearean tragic actors. Tall and classically handsome, with a stentorian Shakespearean voice, he excelled as Shakespeare's Othello, King Lear, Coriolanus and Antony, and Richard III. His most celebrated role was of Sheridan Knowles Virginius. His ghost is purported to haunt National Theatre in Washington D.C. He was very much mourned at his passing. His monument, erected by his friends, is purported to be the tallest monument ever erected to an actor. (bio by: nuge)
